The Republic of Swindenland is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Federal Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.761 billion Swindenlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astoria. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Swind economy, worth a remarkable 1,551 trillion Spesmiloj a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 199,953 Spesmiloj, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and Astoria Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Swindenland's national animal is the All Animals, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Swindenland is ranked 204,551st in the world and 1st in Terra Novae for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -22.76 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
