LeaderHoward Ansel


The Republic of Siwale is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Howard Ansel with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.935 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, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 2,014 trillion Ointments a year, is quite 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 253,913 Ointments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Siwalian lands, the government funds large training centres to turn Sloths into functioning members of society, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. 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 204,674th in the world and 9,538th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -31.22 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
