The Principality of Elskeda is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 194 million Skedes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Skedan economy, worth 4.57 trillion kronor a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,533 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and Elskeda City spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elskeda's national animal is the mountain goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
