A Slanted Black Stripe was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 119

The TEP Citizen of A Slanted Black Stripe is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Reluctant Delegate with an even hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.328 billion Slantees are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Francisco. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slanted Black Stripean economy, worth a remarkable 4,625 trillion stripenotes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,140 stripenotes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. Crime is totally unknown. A Slanted Black Stripe's national animal is the zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is All are Welcome.

A Slanted Black Stripe is ranked 1,644th in the world and 46th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 94.23 Years.
