Slys Paws

Population26.402 billion



The Scritchy Furpile of Slys Paws is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Sly with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 26.402 billion Slys Pawsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Slys Pawsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,373 trillion Champies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,914 Champies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slys Paws's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slys Paws is ranked 206,778th in the world and 8,029th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.18 Crimes Per Hour.
