The Free States of Socialist Swanage is a massive, safe nation, ruled by George Gorin with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 1.323 billion swanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of new Swanage. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish swanish economy, worth 38.8 trillion labour marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 29,296 labour marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'Beaverdogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Swanage's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is multitheism.

Socialist Swanage is ranked 62,530th in the world and 67th in The Internationale for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 45.34 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
