The Empire of Slithen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Emperor with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.087 billion Slithenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zank-Amur. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slithenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,115 trillion Virts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 255,830 Virts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slithen's national animal is the Zaguya Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slithen is ranked 11,731st in the world and 19th in Equilism for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,034.07 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
