The Federal Republic of Schweitzerhinterland is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Cap'n Schweitzerberg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.397 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Big Schweitzer. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schweitzerhinterland's national animal is the marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Schweitzerhinter Franc.

Schweitzerhinterland is ranked 6th in 000 and 108,488th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
