The Serene Dominion of Ancient Slobovia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Iris IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 27.225 billion Ancient Slobovians 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, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ancient Slobovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,465 trillion guilders a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,835 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Large areas of Ancient Slobovia are not accessible by the public, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancient Slobovia's national animal is the silver bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ancient Slobovia is ranked 206,339th in the world and 8,324th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -11.95 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
