Getting Swiss citizenship, by the way, is a difficult endeavor. Not only must you have lived in the country for twelve years (no matter if you were born here), you must also take a test in a Swiss language, pay fees, and be approved by your local community. But on the bright side, even Paul Klee couldn't get citizenship while he was alive, so you're in good company.
