The Banking Empire of Bloody Scandinavia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Guild Leader Von with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.596 billion Norse are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oslo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Guilded economy, worth a remarkable 2,870 trillion Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 377,876 Ducats, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Oslo, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, the Dragon stadiums are open 24/7, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bloody Scandinavia's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Money.

Bloody Scandinavia is ranked 49,564th in the world and 12th in Imperium of the Wolf for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
