The Socialist Republic of Scandinavian Stockholm is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Pitusky Von Skydogs with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate population of 13.924 billion Scandinavian Stockholmians 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skydog City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Scandinavian Stockholmian economy, worth a remarkable 3,386 trillion Skydogs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 243,219 Skydogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Pitusky Von Skydogs is a silly poophead, tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs, songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, and betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandinavian Stockholm's national animal is the Tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Skydoga.

Scandinavian Stockholm is ranked 3,336th in the world and 133rd in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 641.16 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
