The Corporate Administration of Swarmlandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the President and CEO with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.346 billion Swarmlandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Genesis Corporation. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Swarmlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,512 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 300,991 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Playing an online nation simulation game legally obliges you to buy the creator's latest novel, courses on ornithology and apiology are surprisingly popular, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Swarmlandia's national animal is the Genesis Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Swarmology.

Swarmlandia is ranked 8,189th in the world and 3rd in The Genesis Corporation for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 421.05 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
