The Free Land of Svalenbard is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 942 million Svalenbards are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dimocratia. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Svalenbard economy, worth 84.9 trillion florins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,102 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and Svalenbards refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Svalenbard's national animal is the hermit crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Svalenbard is ranked 24,825th in the world and 1,372nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 71.35 on the Human Development Index.
