The Kingdom of Stolkland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Gustav V with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 8.659 billion Swedes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Swedish economy, worth 967 trillion Kronor a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,694 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, dandruff and athlete's foot are seen as signs of physical beauty, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Stolkland. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stolkland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Sweden.

Stolkland is ranked 105,232nd in the world and 24th in The Armillary Sphere for Most Patriotic, with 13.46 flags saluted per person per day.
