The Armed Republic of Svanland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mikael Svan with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 12.637 billion Svanlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svancity. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svanlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,140 trillion Pissetassars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 169,394 Pissetassars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, and the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Svanland's national animal is the Kakstare, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Svanland is ranked 5,438th in the world and 96th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 142,145.38 Standard Monetary Units.
