The Republic of Swindenland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.934 billion Swindenlandians, 6.788 billion of whom are zombies, hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astoria. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Swind economy, worth a remarkable 1,645 trillion Spesmiloj 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 amazing 200,875 Spesmiloj, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A bureaucratic fight over SIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations, parents dread their examinations more than their children, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Swindenland, and conspiracy theorists allege Astoria's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Swindenland's national animal is the All Animals, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Swindenland is ranked 221,617th in the world and 6,973rd in Osiris for Most Avoided, scoring 0.26 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
