The Armed Republic of Sawhirius is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Micheal Thompson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.441 billion Sawhiriusians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sawhirius City. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sawhiriusian economy, worth 928 trillion Shekels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,105 Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomatic cables about Micheal Thompson have suddenly been very flattering, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sawhirius's national animal is the Sawhiriun Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sawhirius is ranked 7,656th in the world and 399th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,683.75 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
