Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Svetlakia is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.865 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 large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Industry 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 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svetlakian economy, worth 248 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 133,015 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown. Svetlakia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Svetlakia is ranked 145,834th in the world and 7,299th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.12 Weapons Per Person.
