Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Swordway is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Czar Nicholas with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.093 billion Swordwayians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stoslo. The average income tax rate is 26.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Swordwayian economy, worth 611 trillion Swords a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 197,721 Swords, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Swordway, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and heavily subsidised Swordwayian baskets litter the streets of The North Pacific. Crime is totally unknown. Swordway's national animal is the Swordfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Swordway is ranked 6,705th in the world and 303rd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 11,230.53 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
