The Progressive Union of Slackertown is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Director of Government Operations with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.978 billion Slackertownians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of People's Place. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Slackertownian economy, worth 429 trillion Cryptocurrencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,159 Cryptocurrencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slackertown's national animal is the Robot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Satanism.

Slackertown is ranked 4,726th in the world and 33rd in The Leftist Assembly for Lowest Crime Rates, with 111.54 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
