LeaderHoward Ansel


The Republic of Siwale is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Howard Ansel with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.36 billion Siwalians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remmington. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Siwalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,314 trillion Ointments a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 245,263 Ointments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Siwale's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Siwale is ranked 1,549th in the world and 92nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.68 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
