The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg

CurrencySkaraborgian Riksdaler

The Pacifist Hamsters of The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Oscar III with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.089 billion Skaraborgians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariestad. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skaraborgian economy, worth 321 trillion Skaraborgian Riksdalers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,169 Skaraborgian Riksdalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg's national animal is the Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is ranked 237,062nd in the world and 9,475th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -13.93 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
