LeaderIngrid Svensson


The Democratic Republic of Nordisklanda is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ingrid Svensson with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.58 billion Nordisklandans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Själlm. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Nordisklandan economy, worth 53.0 trillion Måns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 33,539 Måns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ingrid Svensson has just been declared ruler of Nordisklanda in an international press conference, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordisklanda's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spiritual.

Nordisklanda is ranked 48,940th in the world and 894th in the West Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 122.47 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
