The United Republics of Sveltlana is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Torvill Reitan with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.597 billion Svelts enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herfast. The average income tax rate is 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sveltlanan economy, worth 803 trillion Nörrdalers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 93,445 Nörrdalers, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sveltlana's national animal is the Nordic Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fornsen.

Sveltlana is ranked 17,494th in the world and 768th in Balder for Highest Economic Output, with 803 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
