The State of Slatium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Joshua Lopez with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 1.378 billion Slatumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Almavarius Slatia. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Slatiumian economy, worth 96.9 trillion Sals a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,287 Sals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, there's no escape from the rule of law... or police brutality, and the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slatium's national animal is the Slatumian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Slatium is ranked 16,051st in the world and 23rd in The Kodiak Republic for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,746.99 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
