The Federal Republic of United Kingdoms of Scandinavia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Svëa Øndërlynd Bæstøv with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.594 billion Scandinavians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 23.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Scandinavian economy, worth 70.6 trillion Kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,275 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, an underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, and universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. United Kingdoms of Scandinavia's national animal is the Elk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Skandinavien Lutheran.
