The Kingdom of Sweden-Norway of Ethics Committee of the SCPF is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Oscar II with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.874 billion Kalmarians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ethics Committee of the SCPFian economy, worth 291 trillion Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 101,280 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and gift baskets often contain working nukes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ethics Committee of the SCPF's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Ethics Committee of the SCPF is ranked 239,359th in the world and 75th in The Vincence Empire for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6.92 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
