Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Theocracy of The Zealous Swampites is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Divine Emporer with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.147 billion Swampesians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swamp of Santification. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zealous Swampitesian economy, worth 744 trillion Grails a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 121,171 Grails, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, Divine Emporer's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Zealous Swampites's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Path of the Righteous Smiter.

The Zealous Swampites is ranked 73,890th in the world and 121st in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Black Market, with 276 billion Standard Monetary Units.
