Swiftholm

Population193 million

The Democratic States of Swiftholm is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 193 million Swifties hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 51.9%.

The strong Swiftholmian economy, worth 8.66 trillion Soros Bucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 44,876 Soros Bucks, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, Swifties seem to be catching more chills, high school bands practice by moonlight, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swiftholm's national animal is the housecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Swiftholm is ranked 140,226th in the world and 4,995th in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -2.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
