The capital of Slovenia is Ljubljana. Historically, it was a province of Austria-Hungary, and later of Yugoslavia.

Slovenia in The Disunited States of AmericaEdit

Slovenia was a manufacturer of medical supplies in the home timeline. However, in an alternate where the United States failed in the early 1800s, Slovenia was still part of Austria-Hungary.[1]

When Justin Monroe administered the cure for the measles to Myrtle Bentley, her granddaughter, Beckie Royer, noted that the hypodermic was made in Slovenia, a fact she found peculiar.

Slovenia in "Speaker to Emos"Edit

Emo counselor Carol Nugent asked her emo patient Justin Becker to imagine being abruptly dropped into Slovenia for the rest of his life, and asked him what he'd think he'd do. When he reasoned out that he'd have to start learning the Slovenian language and adapting to Slovenian culture, Nugent then had him overlay that idea onto his own life and worldview. Becker expressed willingness to consider this idea, and to continue their sessions.

Becker had never actually heard of Slovenia before that session.[2]
