The Environmentalist Commune of Outer Verron Swicia Islands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Neko with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.46 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 1,805 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 213,423 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Outer Verron Swicia Islands after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, Neko can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, and the bourgeoisie are asked nicely to hand over the means of production. 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 226,193rd in the world and 9,035th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -42.98 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
