The Nordic Republic of Sweden of United Nordic Sweland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Markus Olsson with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.743 billion Swedes are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Swedish economy, worth 367 trillion kronor a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,926 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, and burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Nordic Sweland's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Asatru.
