The Armed Republic of Sleeping Bags is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.557 billion Sleeping Bagsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 5.2%.

The very strong Sleeping Bagsian economy, worth 95.3 trillion pillows a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 61,181 pillows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Solid steel breastplates are in fashion amongst city drivers, the only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll, only persecuted professionals need apply, and the police insist that racism does not exist. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sleeping Bags's national animal is the tent, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sleeping Bags is ranked 63,348th in the world and 257th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,146.83 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
