The Holy Kingdom of Den svenska riket is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by King Karl XXVI with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.006 billion Swedes are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Den svenska riket's many privately-owned prisons, a recent law has banned homes from having any more than one wheel, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Den svenska riket's national animal is the Swedish Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Protestantism, and its currency is the Krona.

Den svenska riket is ranked 718th in 10000 Islands and 83,013th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 52 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
