Schwanensee is a cosmopolitan meritocracy, which signifies that it allows its citizens to live anywhere around the world, while its citizens are strictly classified into three social classes: the Nobles (貴族), the Elites (華族), and the Commons (庶民). These social classes are mainly based on one's potential and his/her own choices on occupation, since every social class would be designated specified occupations or professions. Social class does not depend on one's origin, and each citizen will have two chances to change the social class he/she belongs to. There are also territories where the social class system is not implemented, such as the Autonomous Communist Region of Rugxflago and the utopian settlements in Elysia.

The official languages of the country are Latin and Esperanto, while German, English, and Japanese are the unofficial languages used more widely among citizens. Each official language is designated to a specific social group. There will be a language test to those who chooses to join the social class where one of the official languages is spoken.

History

Before the independence (~ 1999)

In 1990s, there are only a few micronations in Asia. One of them was the SSRSC (also known as the Soviet Socialist Republic of Swan City, ). It was created by its first commander, Chen Aihui. This country has deeply influenced the independence of the Republic of Ceskonia, which after changed its name to Schwanensee.

Early era (1999 ~ 2007)

On June 30, 1999, three of the activists of the SSRSC declared the independence of Ceskonia because they had a different political opinion. They signed on the Independence Declaration, in order to create a new micronation. Other formal documents such as the Constitution were later signed. However, the country itself, was not very famous at that moment.

Middle era (2007 ~ )

In 2008, the 3rd president of Ceskonia, Zhang Zhicheng decided to make the whole state public. He made the first official website in Chinese. As a result, Schwanensee had had foreign relations with over 270 Chinese cybernations and micronation on the Internet by the end of 2011.
