The Kantone of La Switzerland is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 767 million Swiss enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ibach. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.7%.
The very strong Swiss economy, worth 50.0 trillion Swissmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 65,212 Swissmarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.
Students abandon classrooms for online education, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Switzerland's national animal is the Stag, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
