The Republic of Schwypia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Damien Sieg with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.977 billion Schwypians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milare. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Schwypian economy, worth 473 trillion Xollaks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,059 Xollaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and sometimes a whole prison wing will house a single prisoner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schwypia's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Schwypia is ranked 161,904th in the world and 89th in The Hole To Hide In for Rudest Citizens, with 34.82 Insults Per Minute.
