The Union of Soviet States of Slaytania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Stalinovich with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, avowedly heterosexual populace, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.858 billion Slaytanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South of Heaven. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Slaytanian economy, worth an astonishing 10,176 trillion Strummers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 641,728 Strummers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Slaytania's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, and scientists spend more time enduring government inspections than they do on actual science. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slaytania's national animal is the House Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Stalinism.

Slaytania is ranked 263rd in the world and 3rd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 209.47 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
