The Scandinavian Realm

The Kingdom of The Scandinavian Realm is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Carl Philip Bernadotte with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.062 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gothenburg. The average income tax rate is 71.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Scandinavian economy, worth 919 trillion Scandinavian Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 300,166 Scandinavian Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Scandinavian Realm's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Scandinavian Realm is ranked 6,853rd in the world and 136th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 92.4 on the Human Development Index.
