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, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.247 billion Saiwanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 number of children one can have is restricted by law, birth rates have hit an all-time low, students abandon classrooms for online education, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. 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 103rd in Nordic Lands and 86,854th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -9 on the Hayek Index.
