The Greater Scandinavian Union

Population8.12 billion

LeaderMarius Helgerud


The Federation of The Greater Scandinavian Union is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Marius Helgerud with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 8.12 billion Scandinavians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Scandinavian economy, worth a remarkable 2,763 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 340,327 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Greater Scandinavian Union successfully hosted the the Pacific Olympics, the government is avowedly secular, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, and foreign governments regularly accuse the Scandinavian military of war crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greater Scandinavian Union's national animal is the Moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Greater Scandinavian Union is ranked 199,853rd in the world and 6,383rd in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.71 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
