Switzerland

August 1 is the national day of Switzerland.

/>While capitalism in this nation has presumably sown the seeds of its own destruction, Switzerland is consistently one of the richest nations in the world. Taxes are low, free trade agreements are many, referendums are held regularly, and the nation is powered by both hydro-electricity and nuclear power, meaning carbon emissions from electricity production are close to zero.

/>Switzerland is also home to a range of cool sports like hornussen.
