Swizerland is one of two countries that still exist on Earth as nations (Vatican is the other). Even though the country state is only symbolic, Swizerland was never part of United Earth and no colonists of Swiss origin left Earth during the Second Exodus . Swizerland applied seperatley for Union membership in 2221 .
The country exists symbolically in 5050 and still has its own representative.
The country has done much to maintain and preserve its pre astro character, but lost much of its population. Only about 600,000 Union citizens define themselves as Swiss.
