The Queendom of Icadias is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Catherine I with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 4.203 billion Swedes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Swedish economy, worth 396 trillion Icas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,325 Icas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Devotion to God is only skin-deep, Catherine I is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, a soldier's body is a temple, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icadias's national animal is the Artic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
