The Republic of Siwale is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Howard Ansel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.785 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. 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 4,309 trillion Ointments a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 273,015 Ointments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, bins outnumber trees in city parks, trade policy consists of ganging up on the new guy, and the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid. 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 238,631st in the world and 5,299th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 13.11 on the Rand Index.
