The Federal Republic of Slonful is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 5.304 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 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Slonfulian economy, worth 367 trillion dollars a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,238 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, light entertainment isn't dead, and signs stating "You Must be This Tall to Enter" have started appearing outside retirement homes. 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.

Slonful is ranked 33,252nd in the world and 975th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 71.96 on the Human Development Index.
