The Union of Mecca-Switzerland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Stadtholder Hussein with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.256 billion schweizer-arabiers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wildedstein. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mecca-Switzerlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,913 trillion Gold Francs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,615 Gold Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stadtholder Hussein's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mecca-Switzerland's national animal is the LION, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Mecca-Switzerland is ranked 3,220th in the world and 200th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 375 Meters Of Sunlight.
