The Ochlocratic Districts of Slotheria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Citizen Zaher Virk with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.013 billion Slotherians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slomr. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Slotherian economy, worth 244 trillion Aurums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Soda Sales. Average income is 81,021 Aurums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Votes of no confidence regularly remove unwanted MPs, third world countries are rich in "I Love Slomr" t-shirts, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?". Crime is totally unknown. Slotheria's national animal is the Sapient, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Slotheria is ranked 4,413th in the world and 61st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.25 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
