Sword of Summer

Population2.495 billion



The SPIT For Drink of TSP of Sword of Summer is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Magnus with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.495 billion Swords 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valhalla. The average income tax rate is 37.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Swordese economy, worth 255 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 102,538 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, one can walk from one side of Valhalla to the other without setting foot on Swordese soil, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, and people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute. Crime is totally unknown. Sword of Summer's national animal is the Vampire, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is No.

Sword of Summer is ranked 15,230th in the world and 474th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.38 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
