The People's Republic of Sloburg is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Vid Bizjak with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.204 billion Sloburgese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunaj. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sloburgian economy, worth 649 trillion Tolars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,385 Tolars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Autocrats are persona non grata, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, Sloburg is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and gossip magazines have pictures of Vid Bizjak sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. Crime is totally unknown. Sloburg's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sloburg is ranked 209,816th in the world and 1,103rd in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.47 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
