|Leader||Captain-Presidents Lucio and Alanino|
The Republic of Swindenland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Captain-Presidents Lucio and Alanino with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.81 billion Swindenlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kataro. The average income tax rate is 92.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Swix economy, worth 914 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 190,117 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.
Fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Swix language, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, and fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second. Crime is totally unknown. Swindenland's national animal is the Great Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
