The Republic of Svallen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Governor Theodor Järnfelt with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.432 billion svallenais are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Söderlund. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.7%.

The frighteningly efficient svallenais economy, worth a remarkable 1,156 trillion Svallenese crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 336,923 Svallenese crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,682,104 per year while the poor average 37,994, a ratio of 44.3 to 1.

People say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Svallen's national animal is the swallows, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Svallen is ranked 2,146th in the world and 9th in Calme Ybovien for Fattest Citizens, with 41.79 Obesity Rate.
