The Rogue Nation of Svartkladd is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Master with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 7.474 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 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svartkladdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,691 trillion Chochlobucks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 226,273 Chochlobucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. 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 198,948th in the world and 6,907th in Balder for Least Corrupt Governments, with 57.87 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
