The Environmentalist Commune of Outer Verron Swicia Islands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Neko with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.552 billion Swicians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lapidem Castra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Swicish economy, worth a remarkable 1,148 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 206,790 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, Swicish watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Outer Verron Swicia Islands's radio stations, and t-shirts displaying a photo of Neko performing the Full-Monty are selling out. Crime is totally unknown. Outer Verron Swicia Islands's national animal is the Lolita Catgirl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Outer Verron Swicia Islands is ranked 583rd in the world and 10th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 82.33 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
