The Republic of Swiftwhiskers is a massive, safe nation, ruled by R Lowell with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.44 billion Whiskers 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, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Point. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Whiskerish economy, worth 334 trillion spotties a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,173 spotties, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, bicyclists are banned from major roads, extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Swiftwhiskers is often a lifetime appointment, and colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Leopard'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swiftwhiskers's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whiskerism.
