The NPO Slothmaster General of Pergasloth is a massive, pleasant nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 3.738 billion Pergaslothians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Pergaslothan High Court. The average income tax rate is 22.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Pergaslothian economy, worth 160 trillion Peken Bans a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,923 Peken Bans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
War criminals are given full state funerals, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and school children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pergasloth's national animal is the Sloth Jesters.
