Population8.365 billion

LeaderHoward Ansel


The Republic of Siwale is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Howard Ansel with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.365 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 2,115 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 252,856 Ointments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, and Siwale's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. 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 220,105th in the world and 9,988th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1451.68 on the Hayek Index.
