The Glorious Borderlands of Swith Witherward is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Collective Chorus with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 19.091 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 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Swith Witherwardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,316 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 121,323 Crown Tulgeys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and priests are being drafted by the church load. 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 96,066th in the world and 3,685th in Osiris for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,198.16 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
