Outer Verron Swicia Islands

The Environmentalist Commune of Outer Verron Swicia Islands is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Neko with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.449 billion Swicians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cattus in arcem. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Swicish economy, worth a remarkable 1,343 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 208,303 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Outer Verron Swicia Islands, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and the government is avowedly secular. Crime is totally unknown. Outer Verron Swicia Islands's national animal is the Lolita Catgirl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Headpatism.

Outer Verron Swicia Islands is ranked 153,881st in the world and 6,691st in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -81.78 on the Rand Index.
