LeaderHoward Ansel


The Republic of Siwale is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Howard Ansel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.552 billion Siwalians 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remmington. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Siwalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,403 trillion Ointments a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 251,594 Ointments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Siwalian weed picker are way up, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Siwale's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Siwale is ranked 784th in the world and 48th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,869.94 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
