OverviewDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Union of Mecca-Switzerland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Stadtholder Hussein with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.393 billion schweizer-arabiers 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wildedstein. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mecca-Switzerlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,945 trillion Gold Francs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,214 Gold Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Mecca-Switzerland's radio stations, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', and the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mecca-Switzerland's national animal is the LION, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Mecca-Switzerland is ranked 7,314th in the world and 377th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 123.94 Insults Per Minute.
