The Federal Republic of Slonful is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 6.907 billion Slonfulians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Slonfulian economy, worth 524 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,962 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cops shout apologies with every swing of their baton, children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, Slonful recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, and Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slonful's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Slonful is ranked 16,549th in the world and 488th in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,204.95 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
