The Militarized Republic of Slatos is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The quiet, industrious population of 571 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 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 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Slatosian economy, worth 35.8 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 62,641 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Leader Pics" has made Leader's mom a celebrity, elections have recently been reintroduced to Slatos, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. 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 43,115th in the world and 1,345th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,016.65 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
