The Republic of Swindenland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain-Presidents Lucio and Alanino with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.439 billion Swindenlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 92.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Swix economy, worth 836 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,532 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Swindenland, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes. Crime is totally unknown. Swindenland's national animal is the Great Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Swindenland is ranked 108,681st in the world and 5,847th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 97.84 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
