The Commonwealth of Schwabe is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 169 million Schwabens 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 15.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Schwabean economy, worth 7.93 trillion schwaben marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,940 schwaben marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied schwaben lion, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Schwabe's national animal is the schwaben lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Schwabe is ranked 96,448th in the world and 3,798th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,227.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
