The Supine Socialist Slothland of Maowi is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Josef Slothlin with a fair hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.843 billion Maowese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bradypus City. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Maowese economy, worth 353 trillion toenails 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 124,373 toenails, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime is totally unknown. Maowi's national animal is the sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maowi is ranked 191,004th in the world and 1,498th in Europeia for Most Average, scoring 26.11 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
