The Majestic Lands of Sink or Swim is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.404 billion citizens are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Citizen economy, worth a remarkable 1,814 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 192,989 credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,765,296 per year while the poor average 2,284, a ratio of 772 to 1.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, much of Sink or Swim's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and farmers complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sink or Swim's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sink or Swim is ranked 12,356th in the world and 5th in Yuno for Most Stationary, with 1,267.740160868 Days.
