The Republic of Svenskan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sven Libertani with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.91 billion Svens 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Horne. The average income tax rate is 40.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Svenskanian economy, worth 240 trillion Megacoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 125,675 Megacoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.
Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Svenskan's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bhuddism.
