The Little Planet of Slickpickia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Old Man Henderson the second with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.306 billion Slickpickians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Radiant Fountain Square. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Slickpickian economy, worth a remarkable 4,015 trillion Crabatian Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 219,341 Crabatian Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, and one can walk from one side of Radiant Fountain Square to the other without setting foot on Slickpickian soil. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slickpickia's national animal is the Radiant Creep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slickpickia is ranked 132,493rd in the world and 4,754th in Osiris for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 150.13 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
