Location: The Allied Nations of Egalaria

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Sweeze 4 is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and frequent executions. The hard-working population of 7.854 billion Sweeze 4ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 34.5%.

The Sweeze 4ian economy, worth 306 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,985 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sweeze 4's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sweeze 4 is ranked 193,162nd in the world and 595th in The Allied Nations of Egalaria for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 54.89 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
