One of the few countries in western Europe not part of the EU, although they often adopt EU regulations in the interest of trade. As a result, they still have their own currency, too. The Swiss also didn't join the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations until 2002.

* Speaking of AH.com, there are several timelines which try to avert the above clichés and feature the country in meaningful ways. A notable example is ''ProtectAndSurviveATimeline'', in which the Swiss are among the better off European countries after a nuclear war in late February 1984 decimates civilization. They even [[UnlikelyHero try to help the less fortunate European countries as much as they can]], providing them with surplus supplies and valuable intel. In the post-war world, they become a power to be reconed with. Another TL that uses Switzerland in an interesting way is ''[[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=190997 The Smallest Possible Difference]]''.
