The Kingdom of Svendil is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Will of God with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.741 billion Svendilians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 90.5%.

The all-consuming Svendilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,766 trillion Lord's Bills a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 228,242 Lord's Bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Enemy combatants are presumed guilty until proven innocent, it's not only teenagers who mess around with fake IDs, weather reports simply advise Svendilians to 'look outside', and getting caught with the wrong recipe book can get you locked up for 100 - 500 megaseconds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Svendil's national animal is the Holy Lamb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Zealocisim.

Svendil is ranked 36,464th in the world and 13th in Australialia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.24 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
