The Empire of Swaz Islands is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 453 million Swaz Islandsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Swaz Islandsian economy, worth 21.4 trillion swazzes a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,295 swazzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Books are often used as kindling, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Swaz Islands City, and ghost regiments exist only on paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swaz Islands's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
