OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Capitalist Republic of Saiwania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Helia with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.192 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 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.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, the tenet of free speech is held dear, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion. 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 4th in Nordic Lands and 684th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 103 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
