LeaderHoward Ansel


The Republic of Siwale is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Howard Ansel with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.713 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, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 1,417 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 248,159 Ointments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, and there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship. 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 5,538th in the world and 105th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 116.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
