OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Capitalist Republic of Saiwania is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Queen Helia with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.427 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 government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, eminent domain has been abolished, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat. 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 13th in Nordic Lands and 1,248th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 11 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
