The Supine Socialist Slothland of Maowi is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Josef Slothlin with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.795 billion Maowese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bradypus City. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Maowese economy, worth 639 trillion toenails a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 133,369 toenails, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize Maowi's beaches, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, and the big red machine has ground to a halt. Crime is totally unknown. Maowi's national animal is the sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maowi is ranked 220,547th in the world and 527th in Europeia for Most Primitive, scoring -192.85 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
