The Commonwealth of Swissium is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 18 million Swiss are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 31.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fair Swiss economy, worth 553 billion pokemon cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,728 pokemon cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, the death penalty has been reintroduced, divorce is illegal, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swissium's national animal is the pokemon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Swissium is ranked 169,977th in the world and 23rd in United Nations for Most Influential, scoring 22 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
