The North American State of The Sladerstan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Len Ryenshar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.207 billion Sladerstanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portus Paulum. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sladerstanian economy, worth 103 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,957 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork, Harry Potter books are banned, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sladerstan's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

The Sladerstan is ranked 43,356th in the world and 1st in Sladerstan for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 62.51 Effective Tax Rate.
