The Socialist Commonwealth of Swebtartd is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Senior Feather with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 999 million Swebtartdians 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Swebtartd. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Swebtartdian economy, worth 98.0 trillion swebts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,131 swebts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime is totally unknown. Swebtartd's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Swebtartd is ranked 24,541st in the world and 1,226th in Osiris for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
