The Empire of Skandinavistan
“Through science will we reach the stars”

Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Squire
The Empire of Skandinavistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Theodor Walve with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.545 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 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Skandinavistanian economy, worth 786 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,819 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
School kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas. 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.
