Switzerland (German: die Schweiz [ˈʃvaɪts], French: Suisse [sɥis(ə)]; Italian: Svizzera [ˈzvit͡sːɛra]; Romansh: Svizra [ˈʒviːtsrɐ] or [ˈʒviːtsʁːɐ]), in its full name the Swiss Confederation (Latin: Confoederatio Helvetica, or CH), is a federal republic consisting of 26 cantons.
Switzerland's original territory consists of Romandie to the West, Deutschschweiz towards the North, Graubunden to the East, and Svizzera italiana to the South. All but Romandie are occupied by Slovenia.
Switzerland has an embargo with the following countries:
The Swiss National Army was the state military unit of Switzerland. It was created in March 2012 by President bowen199 and is traditionally commanded by the president, and it is the largest military unit although others exist. When the bowen199, the commander of the SNA, left for the UK, where he later died, the SNA fell into chaos. It disbanded shortly afterwards.
In February 2014, Switzerland saw the return of a national military unit with the Swiss Special Forces.
The military units of Switzerland that are separate from the government include:
While there are many Swiss citizens in eSwitzerland, a large amount of people come to Switzerland internationally, the majority of which are from the USA.
The traditional religion of Switzerland is Renouilleism, a Swiss religion that is based off of the teachings of the spiritual Swiss cow, Renouille. In early 2012, Guillotinism was a significant part of Switzerland, although it is dead today while Renouilleism lives on, primarily recognizable by the Swiss IRC greeting.
Switzerland's government consists of an executive and legislative branch. The executive consists of the President and the officials they appoint to take charge of a particular area of government, while the legislative consists of its congress.

Switzerland has been a nation in the New World since the beginning.
Early in the game (2008), the France-Switzerland War was waged by forces of France and Italy against Switzerland. This ultimately led to Switzerland being erased from the map. The Swiss Independence War that began on December 4, 2008 led to Switzerland liberating Deutschschweiz and Svizzera italiana, reestablishing Switzerland on the map.
Soon after, in January 2009, Switzerland was PTO'd by Theocrats. This PTO, lead by Dio Brando, lasted until late July of 2009. Months later, Switzerland joined EDEN, although at times it was not official due to actions by the Swiss Neutrality Party. Switzerland was eventually suspended as a member due to inactivity.
Switzerland faced another PTO threat in the form of the Shaolins from early 2010 to August 2010. This group was supported by Clifford Burns and the Swiss Neutrality Party, so power flipped between the resistance coalition and the PTO group until Paul Proteus was elected in August.
Initial Slovenian Invasion
In April of 2011, Slovenia and the [[Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)] invaded Switzerland. The nation remained occupied until May, when they joined Luna and freed Svizzera italiana for a short period. Switzerland remained occupied (although the R.o. Macedonia left in July, Slovenia took the regions for themselves) untl September, when president JNArno led talks with EDEN. With the help of sympathetic Croatian soldiers, Switzerland's regions went in and out of Swiss control until EDEN lost their influence in Europe. Later, president Borgogian signed the The Flying Dove Treaty, which meant friendship between the two countries. This caused an uproar within Switzerland, and led to many citizens emigrating out of the country.
Switch to ONE
In April of 2012, Switzerland aligned itself with ONE. This was met with invasions by Germany and Croatia. This ended when the Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Slovenia, and Poland took Croatia's regions. Macedonia (FYROM) ended up with the Swiss regions, and rented out Deutschschweiz for its iron afterwards. This ended in October when the USA invaded to get a border with Hungary, although they never actually warred against them, while Slovenia ended up with all of the Swiss regions.
Cronoss and CoT
While the USA-Macedonia war was being fought, Cronoss, a PTOer, came to Switzerland. His party of multis successful PTO'd Switzerland in March of 2013. While this threat has now mostly been taken care of, Cronoss and his party still reside in Switzerland today. Switzerland also around this time (non-Cronoss Switzerland) was a founding member of the Circle of Trust, a member of which it is still today.
World War VI
Switzerland in early June was the initial cause of World War VI, when an agreement with Slovenia ended and they would not give back Switzerland her regions. This led to the USA invasion of Serbia, and counter invasions by many TWO countries. Slovenia ended up wiping Switzerland again. Switzerland at this point was still under the PTO threat of Cronoss (now known as The Troll Warlord) and a new, questionable group of Hungarians who immigrated illegally, and followed up with rapid increases in Swiss citizenship likely due to the creation of multi-accounts (more than 50 of which were deleted in elections around this time).
On October 19 2013, Switzerland won a resistance war in Graubunden thanks to organization of military units from around Circle of Trust by President Alexandre Walen. After the successful war (fought after a couple of months of unsuccessful Slovenian NAP's), Walen revealed a secret plan made with Canada (then new member of CoT) to rent Alberta. He proposed an airstrike (and won with no congress to vote in favor or opposition) and Switzerland won the region. This event is nicknamed the "Graub-und-Run", as it sounds like both "Graubunden" and "Grab-and-Run" (as Switzerland "grabbed" Graubunden and "ran" to Alberta), after former President Paul Proteus suggested the term on IRC.
