The Extremely PC nation of Slatos is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Aleiki Ellochka with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The quiet, industrious population of 945 million Slatosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Juciag. The average income tax rate is 57.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Slatosian economy, worth 57.3 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,635 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, and Aleiki Ellochka has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slatos's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Slatos is ranked 143,751st in the world and 6,231st in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.58 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
