edit National anthem

The anthem cited in the text is a cantonal anthem; to be more precise, the one of the canton that joined last. I suppose that's intentional, but here's the real one:

Trittst im Morgenrot daher,
Seh'ich dich im Strahlenmeer,
Dich, du Hocherhabener, Herrlicher!
Wenn der Alpenfirn sich rötet,
Betet, freie Schweizer, betet!
Eure fromme Seele ahnt
Gott im hehren Vaterland,
Gott, den Herrn, im hehren Vaterland.

Kommst im Abendglühn daher,
Find'ich dich im Sternenheer,
Dich, du Menschenfreundlicher, Liebender!
In des Himmels lichten Räumen
Kann ich froh und selig träumen!
Denn die fromme Seele ahnt
Gott im hehren Vaterland,
Gott, den Herrn, im hehren Vaterland.

Ziehst im Nebelflor daher,
Such'ich dich im Wolkenmeer,
Dich, du Unergründlicher, Ewiger!
Aus dem grauen Luftgebilde
Tritt die Sonne klar und milde,
Und die fromme Seele ahnt
Gott im hehren Vaterland,
Gott, den Herrn, im hehren Vaterland.

Fährst im wilden Sturm daher,
Bist du selbst uns Hort und Wehr,
Du, allmächtig Waltender, Rettender!
In Gewitternacht und Grauen
Lasst uns kindlich ihm vertrauen!
Ja, die fromme Seele ahnt,
Gott im hehren Vaterland,
Gott, den Herrn, im hehren Vaterland

I don't have the text right here but it also exists in french, italian and rumansch 62.202.36.93 22:55, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

I guess this was intended as a Joke, as the anthem (it is Jura's) sounds more like a revolutionary sound than like a real anthem. I don't think the article is funny though, I might try to rewrite it (if I'm not being lazy someday) --FeTzu 12:19, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

edit National anthem

Thanks, FeTzu - I've substituted, and much else.--Unlaw 10:56, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

edit religion

in the religion section of the article, it says that switzerland has no religion, but in the introductional data above, it says its religion is banking. wouldn't it be better to choose either one or the other? might i suggest to replace that they have no religion, and write a funny passage about banking and such?
