The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg

Population5.061 billion

LeaderKing Oscar III

CurrencySkaraborgian Riksdaler

The Hamsters Knows Best State of The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Oscar III with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.061 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 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skaraborgian economy, worth 553 trillion Skaraborgian Riksdalers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,345 Skaraborgian Riksdalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to King Oscar III's wardrobe, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg, and the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers. 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 269,665th in the world and 12,872nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.08 Obesity Rate.
