Slys Paws

Population26.189 billion



The Scritchy Furpile of Slys Paws is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Sly with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 26.189 billion Slys Pawsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Slys Pawsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,354 trillion Champies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,886 Champies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slys Paws's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slys Paws is ranked 4,868th in the world and 89th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 2,255.70688968 Days.
