The Republic of Swindenland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Captain-Presidents Lucio and Alanino with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.16 billion Swindenlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kataro. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Swix economy, worth 988 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,518 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, bike rage is all the rage, and shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Swindenland's national animal is the Great Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Swindenland is ranked 130,422nd in the world and 6,917th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -3.82 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
