The Union of Mecca-Switzerland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Stadtholder Hussein with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, otherworldly petting zoo, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 6.685 billion schweizer-arabiers 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wildedstein. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mecca-Switzerlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,188 trillion Gold Francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,779 Gold Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mecca-Switzerland's national animal is the LION, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Mecca-Switzerland is ranked 24,670th in the world and 1,021st in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 259,116.55 Standard Monetary Units.
