The Queendom of Slichez is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 10 million Slichezians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The strong Slichezian economy, worth 529 billion Ackers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 52,904 Ackers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 192,353 per year while the poor average 10,352, a ratio of 18.6 to 1.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, bicyclists are banned from major roads, stray cats threaten the fledgling avian-based internet, and a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Slichez's national animal is the Carolina Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Slichez is ranked 68,621st in the world and 135th in Wintreath for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,651.85 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
