Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Socialist States of Swopeland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Daniel Swope IV of Reading with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.463 billion Swopelandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swopeland City. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The sizeable but stagnant Swopelandian economy, worth 35.1 trillion wopes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 10,130 wopes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. Crime is totally unknown. Swopeland's national animal is the elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Swopeland is ranked 1,072nd in The Communist Bloc and 118,936th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -37 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
