The People's Republic of Sloburg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Vid Bizjak with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.436 billion Sloburgese 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 large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunaj. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sloburgian economy, worth 704 trillion Tolars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,713 Tolars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing. Crime is totally unknown. Sloburg's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sloburg is ranked 5,148th in the world and 102nd in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 93.87 on the Human Development Index.
