The Union of Mecca-Switzerland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Stadtholder Hussein with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.457 billion schweizer-arabiers 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wildedstein. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mecca-Switzerlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,952 trillion Gold Francs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,747 Gold Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Mecca-Switzerland, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mecca-Switzerland's national animal is the LION, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Mecca-Switzerland is ranked 231,987th in the world and 9,358th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.15 Obesity Rate.
