he keeps forgetting I've already quoted this:

"The Swedish monarchy

Sweden is a constitutional monarchy. The Swedish head of state since 1973, King Carl XVI Gustaf, exercises no political power and does not participate in political life. He is the representative of the country as a whole, and in that capacity performs mainly ceremonial duties and functions. Among his duties the monarch chairs meetings of the Advisory Council on Foreign Affairs. The king is supported in his duties by Queen Silvia and their three children, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine. Queen Silvia was born in Germany to the German-Brazilian Sommerlath family. "

he doesn't like to be reminded it comes from:

You are responsible for what you say until someone proves you wrong at which point you are never serious, then you are kidding.

Absolutely

You are indeed responsible for what you say.

Like the time you said that a measure of your nation's secularism is what happens out there on the ground.

I am also responsible for what I say and I accept full responsibility for winding you up.

Sweden is a parliamentary democracy, which means that all public power proceeds from the people. At the national level, the people are represented by the Riksdag (Swedish parliament) which has legislative power. The Government implements the Riksdag's decisions and draws up proposals for new laws or law amendments.

Sweden has been a hereditary kingdom since 1544 in the days of Gustav Vasa and the current successor to the throne is Crown Princess Victoria. In 1980, three years after her birth, the Act of Succession became gender-neutral to allow the throne to be passed to the first-born child, male or female.

so if a name decides the type of government a country has, does that mean

Let me get this straight ....

After you die, you think you're going to some magical land where everything is perfect ... and you're going to waste your time sitting behind the big guy just to laugh at people? Your heaven sounds like a place made for idiots.

Oh, the life of the NotBot is ever so much more fulfilling: laughing at the mythology of others why hanging on to dear life to theirs.

NO sense wasting time in the afterlife where there no shortage of time when you can waste it here...
