SwordandShield21

The Republic of SwordandShield21 is a massive, pleasant nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and frequent executions. The devout population of 2.122 billion SwordandShield21ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 18.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The SwordandShield21ian economy, worth 90.2 trillion florins a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,486 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, main battle tanks stalk the woods of SwordandShield21 in search of porpoises, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. Crime is moderate. SwordandShield21's national animal is the porpoise, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

SwordandShield21 is ranked 208,420th in the world and 3,424th in Artificial Solar System for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 17.32 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
