The Constitutional Monarchy of Swatteuer is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sławomir Wróbel with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.804 billion Swatteuerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abazgaria. The average income tax rate is 53.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Swatteuerian economy, worth 431 trillion Marshall Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 113,327 Marshall Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Pledging just four hours of spare time to police work earns a named credit on the government's official website, the government is spending billions of taxpayer Marshall Dollars to support "struggling" industries, balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swatteuer's national animal is the Black Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saint Louigieer.

Swatteuer is ranked 180,562nd in the world and 209th in The Commonwealth Of The Argimin for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.06 Crimes Per Hour.
