LeaderHoward Ansel


The Republic of Siwale is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Howard Ansel with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.945 billion Siwalians 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remmington. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Siwalian economy, worth a remarkable 3,172 trillion Ointments a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 265,571 Ointments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, home renovation projects take decades to complete, and Siwale is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Siwale's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Siwale is ranked 2,599th in the world and 157th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 701.64 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
