Slys Paws

Population28.766 billion



The Scritchy Furpile of Slys Paws is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sly with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 28.766 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 underdeveloped Slys Pawsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,849 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 99,055 Champies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, on-duty Air Slys Paws flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Slys Paws. 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 234,519th in the world and 8,205th in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 15.78 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
