General Information

The Swilla, originally known as the Swilatian Currency Unit, is the national currency of Swilatia, and is equal to 2 NationStates Dollars. It is a very powerful currency even though it is only used in Swilatia. A swilla is divided into 100 pence.


The Swilla symbol was originally simply SW, but now the symbol is a squared-out S and a Squared-out W fused toghter. the middle line of the W and the left side of the S are not to be fused, but are to align. the pence does not have a symbol, so pence is written as a decimal, for example 15 pence would be written as (swilla symbol)0.15. The right linte of the S and the right line of the W are supposed to be one line. A swilla symbol is not considered one if it does not folow these guidelines.


The Swilla was not always the currency of Swilatia. It was actcually introduced during the the Swilatian Revolution by the revolutionary movement, to replace the Swilatian złoty, which was the currency of Swilatia during the monarchy, and considered at that time to be a symbol of the monarchy. The currency was originally known as the Swilajska Jednostka Waluty (Swilatian Currency Unit), but it was informally known to Swilatians as the Swilla, and in 1927 Swilatians voted to have the name of the currency changed to "Swilla".


the swilla has the following coins:
