The Republic of Swiftwhiskers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by WI Swiftski with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 1.534 billion Whiskers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Point. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Whiskerish economy, worth 209 trillion spotties a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,787 spotties, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", and "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Swiftwhiskers's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whiskerism.

Swiftwhiskers is ranked 140,813th in the world and 5,511th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
