The Democratic People's Republic of SLU Government is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 3.973 billion SLUans 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant SLUan economy, worth 36.4 trillion SLUans 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Information Technology. Average income is 9,171 SLUans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, surveillance cameras are banned, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and Mr Happy's Funland has just been named SLU Government's new capital. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SLU Government's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SLU Government is ranked 226,303rd in the world and 1st in SLU for Fattest Citizens, with 9.21 Obesity Rate.
