The Swiss Alps and the Jura Mountains together are the tallest mountain range in the world. They form an unbroken wall around the main Swiss Plateau. The exterior faces of the mountains are extremely steep, although the interior faces are much more shallow. Additionally there is a deep valley surrounding the mountain range from when massive amounts of stone were ripped from the land surrounding the range and added to the mountains.
The Swiss people are extremely secretive. Those that are seen outside of Switzerland are always equipped with cutting edge technology and interact minimally with the outside population. Their form of government is unknown.
The chief exports of Switzerland are expertly made watches and folding pocket knives. They import large amounts of metal, crude oil, and fertilizer.
