The Federal Republic of Slonful is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The quiet, industrious population of 6.424 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Slonfulian economy, worth 495 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,074 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military funding has been stripped back, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. 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 frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Slonful is ranked 104,040th in the world and 4,235th in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 703.83 milliStalins.
