The Most Serene Republic of Shvambraniya is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.12 billion Shvambraniyans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uma. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shvambraniyan economy, worth 792 trillion Molars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,818 Molars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Shvambraniya's national animal is the Seahorse, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Shvambraniya is ranked 205,488th in the world and 5,763rd in the West Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 3.07 Obesity Rate.
