The Holy Kingdom of Den svenska riket is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Karl XXVI with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.849 billion 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 92%, 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.
Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and artists are pillars of society. 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.
