The Allied States of East Swedesia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Erik Verniy with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8.17 billion East Swedesians 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.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alfabusa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.0%.

The frighteningly efficient East Swedesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,744 trillion Shekels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 213,479 Shekels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 684,430 per year while the poor average 50,508, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, and the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Swedesia's national animal is the Metroid, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

East Swedesia is ranked 238,418th in the world and 5,631st in the West Pacific for Most Secular, with 5.66 Atheism Rate.
