OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Capitalist Republic of Saiwania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Helia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.438 billion Saiwanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saiwana. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing industries.

The newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Saiwana Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saiwania's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the Saiwan.

Saiwania is ranked 11th in Nordic Lands and 1,392nd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 271.8 Insults Per Minute (net).
