The Pacifist Hamsters of The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Oscar III with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.138 billion Skaraborgians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariestad. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skaraborgian economy, worth 214 trillion Skaraborgian Anorks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,481 Skaraborgian Anorks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg's national animal is the Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is ranked 4,583rd in the world and 285th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 320 Meters Of Sunlight.
