The United Socialist States of Svetlakia is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, soft-spoken computers, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.151 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, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herzberg. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Svetlakian economy, worth 714 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 138,775 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 5,281st in the world and 247th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 94.28 Effective Tax Rate.
