The Shadow Summoner of Swift Spirit is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, cynical population of 933 million Nephmirians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.
The strong Nephmirian economy, worth 49.7 trillion golden threads a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 53,265 golden threads, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 343,303 per year while the poor average 3,339, a ratio of 102 to 1.
Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Swift Spirit's national animal is the black griffin, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
