The Eternal Riders of Slutsk Horde is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bahdan Wiaczasławawicz Słucki with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, avant-garde cinema, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.899 billion Slutskians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slutsk. The average income tax rate is 49.1%.

The powerhouse Slutskian economy, worth 121 trillion rubles 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. 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 63,865 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government says that Possession is nine-tenths of the Lore, the crispy fried liver of a horse is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants, some Slutskians have nicknamed the monarch "Caligula", and the term "Native Slutskian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slutsk Horde's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Slutsk Iconoclast Church.

Slutsk Horde is ranked 209,434th in the world and 152nd in The United Empires of Carson for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 16.19 Tourists Per Hour.
