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

The TEP Citizen of A Slanted Black Stripe is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Reluctant Delegate with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.862 billion Slantees enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, 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 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slanted Black Stripean economy, worth a remarkable 4,663 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 187,594 stripenotes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The A Slanted Black Stripe Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. 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 5,160th in the world and 137th in The East Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 39.97 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
