The Republic of Northern Swallowtails is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 10.453 billion Northern Swallowtailsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Northern Swallowtailsian economy, worth 738 trillion diamond coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,612 diamond coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, war vets look after war animals, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Swallowtails's national animal is the swallowtail, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Northern Swallowtails is ranked 61,782nd in the world and 4th in The Western Colonies for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.96 Bank.
