The Republic of Slenty is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Valery Ilyich with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.003 billion Slentians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novoroyssia. The average income tax rate is 15.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Slentyian economy, worth 431 trillion Comrades 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 an impressive 107,813 Comrades, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Bambi has been banned, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Slentyian Liberator", and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Slenty's national animal is the blue fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
