Swedish Emmpire

Population3.74 billion

CapitalNew Stockholm
LeaderGladion Aether


The Empire of Swedish Emmpire is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gladion Aether with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.74 billion Swedish Emmpireans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 25.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Swedish Emmpirean economy, worth 110 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,601 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gladion Aether has just been declared ruler of Swedish Emmpire in an international press conference, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime is totally unknown. Swedish Emmpire's national animal is the chipmunk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Many.

Swedish Emmpire is ranked 31,862nd in the world and 1,439th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.37 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
