The Republic of Schwypia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Angelica Hethwyr with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.545 billion Schwypians 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 Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milare. The average income tax rate is 71.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Schwypian economy, worth 455 trillion Xollaks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,221 Xollaks, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

A policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Schwypia" at foreigners, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schwypia's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Schwypia is ranked 17,714th in the world and 25th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,544.69 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
