The Commonwealth of Slowetia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Angus Niege with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.039 billion Slowetians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polaria. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Slowetian economy, worth 559 trillion Slowetian Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,590 Slowetian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, tourists call Slowetian beach towns "the fine coastline", cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and straitjackets are a common religious garb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slowetia's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slowetia is ranked 29,649th in the world and 104th in Wintreath for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 188.95 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
