The Holy Empire of Sween is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Matthew I with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 16.108 billion Imperials 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Setsuri. The average income tax rate is 91.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 4,362 trillion dollars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 270,808 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, real estate agencies are being replaced by naval recruitment offices, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sween's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is the Faith of Inheritance.

Sween is ranked 199,860th in the world and 1st in Galactic Empire of Sween for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.66 Crimes Per Hour.
