The Imperial Directorate of Slekomania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Director Dr Lev Waltari with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.472 billion Slekomanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Citadel. The average income tax rate is 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Slekomanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,772 trillion Digital sleks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 411,168 Digital sleks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Slekomania's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is absolute submission to the state.

Slekomania is ranked 219,522nd in the world and 7,192nd in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.17 Weapons Per Person.
