The Nation of Saiwania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Enitap with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.336 billion Saiwanians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saiwana. The average income tax rate is 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Saiwanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,830 trillion Saiwans a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 221,373 Saiwans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime is totally unknown. Saiwania's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nationalism.

Saiwania is ranked 29,323rd in the world and 358th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 74.84 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
