The Sleepy Town of ThePlace is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Most Tired Person with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.783 billion Sleepers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sleepy economy, worth 787 trillion Zzzes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,141 Zzzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", and freedom is never freely given — only when the alternative is too expensive. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ThePlace's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Passive Aggression.

ThePlace is ranked 168,121st in the world and 3,818th in the Rejected Realms for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.94 kickbacks per hour.
