Generally, the people of the Scandinavian Empire maintain an ancient prejudice that can be traced back to their Norse ancestry. Though the Norse make up the single largest group in the country they are not the majority. Yet they make up nearly one hundred percent of the citizens that can vote. With them controlling the Parliament and supporting the emperors the Norse have controlled the armed forces, politics, economy, and the imperial throne for the empire’s entire history. At the top of the Norse society are the extremely long –lived Valgardian Norse, of which the emperors belong to, and they are wealthiest and most powerful single group in the country. As a whole the Norse generally separate themselves from non-Norse and even more so non-White peoples. Though the government doesn’t endorse this they do nothing to stop. This has resulted with the Norse making their own communities and schools that are separated from non-Norse and other races. These communities tend to have far better schools, higher incomes, and greater standards of living then the rest of the empire. An example of this is the imperial capital of Valgard which by Imperial law no non-Valgardian may enter save by the Emperors consent, which is rarely given.

The non-Norse Europeans and people of other races have in turn have been put in a inferior place. These groups cannot vote and cannot be elected to public office, due to strict citizen laws. As well they have a lower educational standard, inferior healthcare, and overall have lower incomes and standards of living. In the past and present the Imperial government has generally overlooked this, despite large protests by citizens, auxiliary citizens, and non-citizens.

OOC: I will complete the rest over the next few days.

On the natural resource list, Pluntonium is not a natural resource, rather an artifically created element based off of Uranium. And it says you have a mostly mountainous terrain, with huge oil deposits on the land. Oil drills on mountains? Besides that, you dont have a Coalitionist Government... but I geuss that is'nt technically wrong...

Will there be a who's who (with Fat Monkey 13?)? And how are the fiefs going?
The Scandinvans
21-12-2005, 02:52
Yes, there will be a who's who eventually, and no offense Fat Monkey 13 is really a major or widely known person in the empire because though he is noble their are many wealthier and more powerful nobles. Also the feifs are generating a large amount of income.

Total: 2,549,000,000
Citizen: 1,000,000
Auxiliary Citizen: 49,000,000
Non-Citizen: 1,400,000

In your population section, I think you want it to say 1,000,000,000 for Citizen and 1,400,000,000 for Non-Citzen (unless I am missing something)

32% Catholic, 38% Odinists (old Viking Religion), 20% Protestant Detonations, 9% Buddhist, 21% other Religions, 9% Atheist, 1% Banned Religions.

The total of the religions add up to 130% (unless a lot of people believe in 2 religions... :confused: )

1 Darvian= $1.60
GPD; $75,000,000
Per Captia: $25,000

Is the GPD supposed to be GDP? If so, how does a nation in which the total GDP is 75,000,000 with 2.5 Billion people (roughly), have a GDP per capita of 25,000?
