The Union of Mecca-Switzerland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stadtholder Hussein with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.407 billion schweizer-arabiers 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wildedstein. The average income tax rate is 84.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Mecca-Switzerlandian economy, worth 802 trillion Gold Francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,471 Gold Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. 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 15,050th in the world and 866th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 155.98 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
