The United Socialist States of Svetlakia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.745 billion Svetlakians 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herzberg. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Svetlakian economy, worth 659 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,087 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, builders across Svetlakia are blocked up with orders for new public loos, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. Crime is totally unknown. Svetlakia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Svetlakia is ranked 156,457th in the world and 8,777th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -8.77 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
