The Great New Swiss

Population1.259 billion


CurrencySwiss Franc
AnimalSwiss Alpine Duck

The Federal Republic of The Great New Swiss is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.259 billion Swissies enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berne. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Great New Swissian economy, worth 118 trillion Swiss Francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,336 Swiss Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, and returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great New Swiss's national animal is the Swiss Alpine Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Great New Swiss is ranked 210,408th in the world and 1,219th in Europe for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.54 kickbacks per hour.
