The Principality of Schwyzerbund is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 493 million swisses enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schwyz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The powerhouse swiss economy, worth 38.7 trillion swiss francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 78,468 swiss francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 368,388 per year while the poor average 9,954, a ratio of 37.0 to 1.

Onions have been banned due to their tendency to cause eye irritation, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly", and shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Schwyzerbund's national animal is the ibex, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Schwyzerbund is ranked 42,940th in the world and 42nd in Union Mundial for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 115.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
