The Rogue Nation of Svartkladd is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Master with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 5.603 billion Svartkladdians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shangri-La. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svartkladdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,176 trillion Chochlobucks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,951 Chochlobucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Svartkladd's national animal is the Krolik, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Svartkladd is ranked 92,416th in the world and 2,917th in Balder for Most Politically Free, scoring 53.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
