Helvetica Nationalists

Population376 million


CurrencySwiss Franc

The Confederacy of Helvetica Nationalists is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 376 million Swiss are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geneva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The powerhouse Swiss economy, worth 36.9 trillion Swiss Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 98,019 Swiss Francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 384,322 per year while the poor average 17,007, a ratio of 22.6 to 1.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses'. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helvetica Nationalists's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Helvetica Nationalists is ranked 105,708th in the world and 880th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,576.82 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
