The Federal Republic of Swinas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Eduard Hoffman with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.702 billion Swish enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cape Cresta City. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Swish economy, worth 665 trillion Swish Rams a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 116,735 Swish Rams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Swinas, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. Crime is totally unknown. Swinas's national animal is the Swish Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Swinnic Orthodoxy.

Swinas is ranked 284,189th in the world and 157th in Anteria for Most Patriotic, with 0.38 flags saluted per person per day.
