The Scritchy Furpile of Slys Paws is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sly with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 24.608 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 underdeveloped Slys Pawsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,371 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 96,376 Champies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

School lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately, Slys Pawsian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Sly, and the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens. 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 15,033rd in the world and 425th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 298.63 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
