The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg

CurrencySkaraborgian Riksdaler

The Hamsters Knows Best State of The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Oscar III with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.503 billion Skaraborgians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariestad. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skaraborgian economy, worth 483 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 107,377 Skaraborgian Riksdalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive. 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 261,088th in the world and 13,534th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.7 crimes per hour.
