The Serene Dominion of Ancient Slobovia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Iris IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 27.708 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 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ancient Slobovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,509 trillion guilders a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,481 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 198,557th in the world and 7,394th in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -7.07 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
