Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a nation located in Western Europe.

The Great Nuclear War erupted around the small nation, the nuclear missiles only barely missing its major cities. After the ashes settled, Switzerland became a strong regional power, due to its virtually untouched nation. Gaining resources by trading with its European neighbors, most notably West Germany, the nation has innovated many technologies including the personal computer, DNA fingerprinting, advanced rocket technology and video games. This unfazed invention craze has bolstered the economy, and Switzerland is on the path to become a technological powerhouse.

History

For the most part, Switzerland stayed neutral during the Great Nuclear War. Although the President did express concern about the impending catastrophe and defended the United States president in his initial actions, not a single missile hit Swiss soil. The two lumbering giants of the world were destroying each other, and the world along with it. The Swiss, however, looked on in horror, but not at their own cities.

When the war ended, the nation received millions of Italian, German, and even Spanish refugees pouring into the tiny nation, seeking a better life after the nuclear carnage had befell the world. Engineers, technicians, farmers, and painters all found work in Switzerland, bringing their talents to the nation and strengthening its economy.

Switzerland has annexed the area within 10 kilometres of Lake Geneva in the wake of the war, opening up more areas for development. Besides that, though, Switzerland's borders have remained the same from before the war.

In 2012, 10 years after the founding of the International League, Switzerland joined the IL to "aid in the spread of peace and prosperity around the globe". Switzerland is a major contributor in the IL, sending technological inventions, revolutionary farming techniques, and ground-breaking medicines to the world stage. However, the nation refuses to provide any peacekeeping forces to the IL, for it "violates the code that our nation (Switzerland) is built upon".
