The Glorious Borderlands of Swith Witherward is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Collective Chorus with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 15.118 billion Swithwardians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulgivold. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Swith Witherwardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,821 trillion Crown Tulgeys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 120,476 Crown Tulgeys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swith Witherward's national animal is the jade-throated Ipsedi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Philosophical Practice of Tolerance.

Swith Witherward is ranked 39,780th in the world and 4th in Madhouse Productions for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 195,213.09 Standard Monetary Units.
