The Swedish Empire of Burlington-Sverige is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kejsare Karl XV av Sverige with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.95 billion Swedes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing industries.
Army rations are served on silver platters, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Burlington-Sverige's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Staunchly Atheist, and its currency is the Swedish Krona.
