Slys Paws

Population26.821 billion



The Scritchy Furpile of Slys Paws is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sly with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 26.821 billion Slys Pawsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Slys Pawsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,416 trillion Champies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,093 Champies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, on-duty Air Slys Paws flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Slys Paws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slys Paws's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slys Paws is ranked 200,277th in the world and 8,277th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 380.29 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
