The Federal Republic of Witzerland is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.315 billion Witzerlandians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quartz. The average income tax rate is 2.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Witzerlandian economy, worth 779 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 235,250 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Witzerland's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Witzerland is ranked 163,517th in the world and 6,693rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 531.22 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
