The One-sided Captivated Love of Stockholm-Syndrome is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Nils Bejerot with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.152 billion Stockholm-Syndromeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salt Lake City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.8%.

The powerhouse Stockholm-Syndromean economy, worth 866 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 71,313 Kronor, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, many feel that the government's ban on cars to combat reckless driving was "a tad excessive", Nils Bejerot has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stockholm-Syndrome's national animal is the captive, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Stockholm-Syndrome is ranked 59,260th in the world and 1st in Believe And Be Saved for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 189,069 Standard Monetary Units.
