The Republic of Swiftwhiskers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mark R Lowell with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 3.945 billion Whiskers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Point. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Whiskerish economy, worth 550 trillion spotties a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,632 spotties, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swiftwhiskers's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whiskerism.

Swiftwhiskers is ranked 7,914th in the world and 232nd in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.63 Years.
