The Holy Empire of Sween is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Matthew I with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 14.32 billion Imperials are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Setsuri. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 2,559 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 178,730 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 721,754 per year while the poor average 29,541, a ratio of 24.4 to 1.

Organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, water fights now end with thousands dead, and citizens must pay to enjoy Sween's pristine beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sween's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Faith of Inheritance.

Sween is ranked 157,174th in the world and 1st in Galactic Empire of Sween for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.12 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
