The Republic of Zwen is a huge, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 494 million Zwenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 57.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zwenian economy, worth 42.6 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,137 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zwen's national animal is the beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zwen is ranked 154,093rd in the world and 2,625th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 42.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
