The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg

Population681 million


CurrencySkaraborgsk Anork

The Optimistic People of The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 681 million Skaraborgians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skövde. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Skaraborgian economy, worth 55.8 trillion Skaraborgsk Anorks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,912 Skaraborgsk Anorks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, all guns must be registered, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, and the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg's national animal is the Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is ranked 5,043rd in the world and 228th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,433.34 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
