The Empire of Skandinavistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Theodor Walve with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.699 billion Skandinavistanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Skandinavistanian economy, worth 651 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,706 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
The nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Skandinavistanian Liberator", the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Skandinavistan, and weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skandinavistan's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
