Slys Paws

Population23.898 billion



The Scritchy Furpile of Slys Paws is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sly with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 23.898 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 2,353 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 98,486 Champies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A third of Slys Pawsians are e-certified CEOs, wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. 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 33,193rd in the world and 1,109th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.29 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
