The Kingdom of The Scandinavian Realm is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Carl Philip Bernadotte with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.834 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, with Education, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, 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 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scandinavian economy, worth 764 trillion Scandinavian Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 269,930 Scandinavian Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, and students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Scandinavian Realm's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Scandinavian Realm is ranked 141,997th in the world and 581st in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.79 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
