Sweden Kard

Population2.18 billion


The Kingdom of Sweden Kard is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The democratic population of 2.18 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 45.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sweden Kardian economy, worth 57.2 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 26,216 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Anyone interested in the stock market is investigated, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem, and where there's smoke there's the Sweden Kardian Forestry Department. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Sweden Kard's national animal is the penguin.

Sweden Kard is ranked 114,192nd in the world and 2nd in Guinea Kiribati for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,363.5 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
