The European Union of Slavonia and Srijem is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Matko with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.948 billion Croats enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osijek. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Slavonia and Srijemian economy, worth a remarkable 1,840 trillion Kunas 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 231,535 Kunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slavonia and Srijem's national animal is the Dalmatian Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slavonia and Srijem is ranked 69,801st in the world and 275th in Europe for Most Extreme, scoring 22.86 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
