Sword Nation

The Republic of Sword Nation is a large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 62 million Sword Nationians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Sword Nationian economy, worth 3.31 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,423 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, cold medicines curiously become cheaper when government officials sneeze, private law firms are unheard of, and wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sword Nation's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sword Nation is ranked 136,788th in the world and 33rd in Nostromo for Highest Drug Use, scoring 18.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
