The Unitary Republic of Swinas is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Amelia Norris with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.41 billion Swish 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 Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goatford. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Swish economy, worth 151 trillion Swish Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 107,146 Swish Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The secret ingredient is love (and MSG), flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, Goatford has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, and obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swinas's national animal is the Swish Goat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is who knows what.

Swinas is ranked 213,501st in the world and 280th in Anteria for Most Beautiful Environments, with 427.24 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
