The Holy 1984 Zombie of Svenskskit is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Johann Kaspar Schmidt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.497 billion Svenskjävlar are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Svenskjävlig economy, worth 294 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 196,458 kronor, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 952,398 per year while the poor average 23,457, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

Fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash, requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, and petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through Johann Kaspar Schmidt's window to draw attention to their issues. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Svenskskit's national animal is the phantasm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Transhumanist Ego Theocratic Imperialism.

Svenskskit is ranked 233,887th in the world and 9,567th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 3.52 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
