The Kingdom of The Scandinavian Realm is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Carl Philip Bernadotte with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.028 billion Scandinavians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gothenburg. The average income tax rate is 69.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Scandinavian economy, worth 172 trillion Scandinavian Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 167,553 Scandinavian Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Carl Philip Bernadotte on The Scandinavian Realm's coulrophobia epidemic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Scandinavian Realm's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Scandinavian Realm is ranked 10,175th in the world and 148th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 167,553.37 Standard Monetary Units.
