            Sweden is a country with a diverse culture and people.
             government consists of a figurehead king and the Riksdag (Swedish .
             parliament). The government is the force in the process by which their laws .
             are changed. The changes a government wishes to make are set out in .
             legislative proposals, or bills, which are then laid before the Riksdag. .
             The Riksdag has 349 members. Elections for the members are on .
             district levels every four years. The decisions of the Riksdag are based on .
             proposals from either the government or motions put forward by members. .
             The work of the Riksdag is led by the Riksdag Board, which is chaired by .
             the Speaker. The members of parliament are divided into 16 committees .
             which deal with some 200 Government bills.
             Carl XVI Gustaf has been the Head of State of Sweden since 1973. In .
             this capacity he is the representative of the entire country and as such, has .
             only ceremonial duties and functions. The Head of State has no real .
             political power and does not participate in political life. The Swedish .
             monarchy is purely constitutional. The Head of State makes state visits to .
             other countries and acts as host for representatives of other countries who .
             are visiting Sweden. .
             Sweden is mostly a parlimentary government, but it is also a .
             monarchy. The King is the Head of State but serves no real purpose other .
             than to act as an ambassador to welcome representatives. The parliament .
             serves the needs of the people as well as what’s good for the country. The .
             country has a low crime rate and a high employment rate. The country works .
             well with this form of government and wouldn’t need another form of it. .
