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 national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 7.924 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 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 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Swedish economy, worth 575 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 72,630 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, citizens are only allowed to view government-approved TV shows, and reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees. 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.
