Sweden Kard

Population4.213 billion


The Lands of Sweden Kard is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 4.213 billion Sweden Kardians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Sweden Kardian economy, worth 106 trillion Ricks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,355 Ricks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, Leader is considering changing the Sweden Kardian flag to one with more glitter, the government's only official statement on the burning down of Sweden Kard City was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', and aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Sweden Kard's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sweden Kard is ranked 69,588th in the world and 3rd in Guinea Kiribati for Most Income Equality, scoring 51.28 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
