The Republic of Switzar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Maxime Laurent with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.792 billion Switzarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Everux. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Switzarian economy, worth 526 trillion Thunes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 109,821 Thunes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, and Switzar isn't what it used to be. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Switzar's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Switzar is ranked 6,843rd in the world and 1st in Aetheli for Safest, scoring 124.16 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
