Administration

As an overseas territory of Vishwamitra, Swevalis is highly dependent on the government of Vishwamitra for its administration. The Administrator of Swevalis who serves as the representative of the Monarch of Vishwamitra is responsible for the day-to-day affairs of the territory and carries out the duties as the de facto head of state and government while the monarch is the de jure head of state. The current administrator is Rory McPhail who has been in office since the annexation of the territory on 23 September 2021 and is the first occupant of the office.

His sister, Rubi McPhail has been serving as the Deputy Administrator of Swevalis since 7 December 2021.

Geography

Swevalis is situated on the 21st parallel south adjacent to the Coral sea coast and about both banks of the Pioneer River. The Clarke Range lies to the west of the territory.

Climate

Swevalis has a humid subtropical climate (Cwa) under the Köppen climate classification.[1] Average maximum temperatures range from 30 °C (86 °F) in summer to 23 °C (73 °F) in winter, while minimums range from 11 to 23 °C (52 to 73 °F).

Winters are sunny and fairly dry, with minimum temperatures usually around 10 °C (50 °F), but rarely any lower than 5 °C (41 °F). Days are pleasant and warm; however, occasional cloudy days may keep the temperature below 20 °C (68 °F) all day. Frost is extremely rare in Swevalis; however, it has been recorded to the west of the city during some winters. Swevalis gets around 110.0 clear days annually.

Spring is usually dry, but significantly hotter and more humid than winter, with temperatures beginning to top 30 °C (86 °F) on a regular basis. Occasional thunderstorms may cause heavy downpours, but the very heavy rain will not arrive until later in summer.

December is the start of the wet season, which lasts until March or April. High humidity, almost daily rainfall and very warm nights are typical of this time of year. Monsoonal low pressure systems and tropical cyclones occasionally affect Swevalis, and cause very heavy, prolonged periods of rain, with totals of up to 200 mm (7.9 in) often being recorded in 24 hours during these systems.

Extreme temperatures in Swevalis have ranged from 39.7 to −0.4 °C (103.5 to 31.3 °F).
