The Former TNPV Winner of The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Oscar III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.318 billion Skaraborgians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skövde. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Skaraborgian economy, worth 123 trillion Skaraborgsk Anorks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,791 Skaraborgsk Anorks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, books are so highly regarded in The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg's national animal is the Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheranism - Church of Skara.

The Democratic Kingdom Of Skaraborg is ranked 226,970th in the world and 10,465th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19.15 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
