The Republic of Swordway is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Czar Nicholas with a fair hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.725 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 26.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Swordwayian economy, worth 538 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 197,565 Swords, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, and Czar Nicholas tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty". Crime is totally unknown. Swordway's national animal is the Swordfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Swordway is ranked 140,416th in the world and 7,017th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
