Theed Swithe

Population1.951 billion

FaithGraeco-Roman Paganism


The Holy Empire of Theed Swithe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vesta with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 1.951 billion Theed Switheans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blaireau. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Theed Swithean economy, worth 124 trillion Drachmas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,956 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', Scout campfire sing-a-longs tend to focus on the evils of antitrust legislation, sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, and economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theed Swithe's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Graeco-Roman Paganism.

Theed Swithe is ranked 19,126th in the world and 562nd in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 9 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
