The Empire of Swaz Islands is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 254 million Swaz Islandsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 51.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Swaz Islandsian economy, worth 10.1 trillion swazzes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,795 swazzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Swaz Islands will pay them to stop, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swaz Islands's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
