General Info

The Athletic Paradise of Sliponia is located in the region of Lancre, and has is most known for its athletic achievements, having won the fourth Handball World Cup 29 to 22 versus a most heated athletic rival, NEWI Cefn Druids. Among that honor Sliponia has hosted several events as well as competed in regional events. In the Lancre Olympics, Sliponia walked away with 12 golds, 10 silvers, and 1 bronze for a total of 23 medals and the overall victory.

The Athletic Paradise of Sliponia is a massive, economically powerful nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 4.62 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The Sliponian Jayhawk

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Soda Sales.

Skateparks can be found in every city, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sliponia's national animal is the Jayhawk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Slip.

Sliponia is ranked 6th in Lancre and 5,824th in the world for Nudest.


Sliponia is run through a direct democracy. Every vote counts! Direct democracy in its traditional form is Rule by the people through referenda. The people are given the right to pass laws, veto laws and withdraw support from a representative (if the system has representatives) at any time. In Sliponia, this is true on the local level, but not the national level.

Present Day

The incumbent leader is President Jesse Ross serving in his second consecutive term. National elections happen every three years while local elections are yearly. There are several parties in Sliponia's elections and they all stand an equal chance. Votes split fairly equally among them all, but the Celtic Party, which is the current ruling party, tends to get most of the votes.
