Swan River Colony

Population10.145 billion


The Queendom of Swan River Colony is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.145 billion Swan River Colonyians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Welfare, although Industry, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The strong Swan River Colonyian economy, worth 646 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 63,690 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 433,015 per year while the poor average 3,422, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Military funding has been stripped back, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, all tariffs have been abolished, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Swan River Colony's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Swan River Colony is ranked 187,177th in the world and 8th in Western Australia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 62.75 Years.
