|Leader||King Gustaf VII|
The Scandinavian Commonwealth of The 3rd Swedish Empire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Gustaf VII with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.711 billion Swedes 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Swedish economy, worth 713 trillion crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,432 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.
The new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, the government is funneling billions into Cape The 3rd Swedish Empire following the shuttle crash, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The 3rd Swedish Empire's national animal is the Osprey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.
