The Pirate Sounding Name of Swaklaton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Corporate Conglomerate with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.3 billion Swaklations are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gold City. The average income tax rate is 18.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Swaklatonian economy, worth 248 trillion Lakts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,134 Lakts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Swaklatonian military unleashed its biological weapons, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, and recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for The Corporate Conglomerate's eyes only'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swaklaton's national animal is the Poisoned Fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Goldism.

Swaklaton is ranked 128,080th in the world and 1st in NSCP for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 851.35 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
