Population4.797 billion

LeaderHoward Ansel


The Republic of Siwale is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Howard Ansel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.797 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 Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 1,125 trillion Ointments a year, is quite 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 234,668 Ointments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Remmington to enjoy their national art, military funding has been stripped back, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. 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 636th in the world and 25th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 100.61 Effective Tax Rate.
