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

The TEP Citizen of A Slanted Black Stripe is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Reluctant Delegate with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.8 billion Slantees enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, 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 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slanted Black Stripean economy, worth a remarkable 4,282 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 187,818 stripenotes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The San Francisco Times is sold out. 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 18,514th in the world and 663rd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 78.19 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
