The Church of Slongs is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The great Dong with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.159 billion Slongsians 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 Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kongo. The average income tax rate is 48.3%.

The all-consuming Slongsian economy, worth 397 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,537 marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, colonial subjects have Slongsian culture shoved down their throats, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Slongsian roads, and claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slongs's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bellringing.

Slongs is ranked 117,037th in the world and 4,884th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 270.97 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
