The Commonwealth of Slembanan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.689 billion Slembananians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madrid. The average income tax rate is 19.2%.

The Slembananian economy, worth 125 trillion liroes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 46,611 liroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slembanan's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secularism.

Slembanan is ranked 127,539th in the world and 139th in Oneid for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 96,355 Standard Monetary Units.
