The Republic of Swainsians is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.489 billion Swainsians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eisnerland. The average income tax rate is 35.6%.

The powerhouse Swainsiansian economy, worth 121 trillion Malliands a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 81,579 Malliands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, a major religion has been named as Swainsians's national religion, right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat, and citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swainsians's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Swainsians is ranked 40,427th in the world and 4th in Province of Mactan for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,421.94 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
