The Federal Republic of Slonful
“Peace and Justice”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Federal Republic of Slonful is a massive, genial nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 3.695 billion Slonfulians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Slonfulian economy, worth 262 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,011 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Straitjackets are a common religious garb, all beauty contests have been banned, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and riots have broken out as a water shortage threatens Slonful's stability. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slonful's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
