The United States of Slippers is a massive, genial nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 1.362 billion Slippersians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slipsburg. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slippersian economy, worth 152 trillion Slip Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 111,628 Slip Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slippers's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Slippers is ranked 131,850th in the world and 7,596th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 55.59 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
