The Federal Republic of Slonful is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 5.444 billion Slonfulians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Slonfulian economy, worth 379 trillion dollars a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,737 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts, a government program is underway to revitalize Slonful's beaches, and toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slonful's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Slonful is ranked 50,914th in the world and 1,603rd in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,708.54 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
