The Democratic Union of Sword Island is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alex Carrey with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.25 billion Sword Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fredericksburg. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sword Islandian economy, worth 167 trillion Mada Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is 74,417 Mada Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The blind lead the blind in social welfare, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries, and the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sword Island's national animal is the red kite, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sword Island is ranked 150,635th in the world and 20th in Liberty Democratic Alliance for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 613.63 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
