The Mighty Building Material of Concrete Slab is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Alistair Stonesworth with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.229 billion Concrte Slabians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stone City. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Concrete Slabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,191 trillion Stones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 227,932 Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime is totally unknown. Concrete Slab's national animal is the Red Panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Concrete Slab is ranked 144,312th in the world and 4,592nd in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 27.37694081208 Days.
