The Holy Empire of Theed Swithe is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vesta with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.5 billion Theed Switheans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blaireau. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Theed Swithean economy, worth 166 trillion Drachmas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,589 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, thousands of cute furry kittens are trampling everything in their path (Theed Swithe has found 1 easter egg), a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theed Swithe's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Graeco-Roman Paganism.

Theed Swithe is ranked 37,941st in the world and 1,110th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 127 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
