OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Capitalist Republic of Saiwania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Helia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.981 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, liberal 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 41%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing industries.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. 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 1st in Nordic Lands and 113th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 677 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
