    Every home, every office, and every factory is as neat as a pin. They are organized beyong belief. The Swiss banker displays no emotion and less humor. Banking is done by numbers, and depositors are frequently anonymous. Everything that is manufactured in switzerland is of superb quality and precision.

    "Here's a more interesting (actually verifiable) bit on Switzerland: The government issues all adult men a gun and provides mandatory firearms training. As one the most well-armed countries in Europe, they have historically remained neutral in wartime."

    Its not all men. Only the people who join the army have a weapon at home and a lot of people refuse to join the army. Intrestingly there is very little violence happening from the people who posses the arms which somehow falsifies Michael Moores movies.
