The Federal Republic of The Great New Swiss
“Work,Equality,Democracy and Welfare for Swiss people”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Federal Republic of The Great New Swiss is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 410 million Swisses 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berne. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Great New Swissian economy, worth 30.2 trillion Swiss Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 73,573 Swiss Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Great New Swiss's national animal is the Swiss Alpine Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
