The Holy Kingdom of Den svenska riket is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Karl XXVI with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 6.877 billion Swedes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Swedish economy, worth 472 trillion Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 68,776 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, and volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Den svenska riket has found 2 easter eggs). 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, and its national religion is Protestantism.
