             Sweden is a country with a diverse culture and people. Its
             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
             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.
