The Global Empire of DeNorSweLand is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Cygnus Schwarz with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.614 billion Denorswelandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swanson. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient DeNorSweLandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,054 trillion feathers a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 187,886 feathers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and immigrants flood the job queues as discrimination in the workplace makes a staggering comeback. Crime is totally unknown. DeNorSweLand's national animal is the Black Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cygnetism.

DeNorSweLand is ranked 258,126th in the world and 173rd in Eientei Gensokyo for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.75 crimes per hour.
