While Swedes and other Scandinavians have at least a vague idea of how their 19th century went, we Americans are less informed on historical Sweden. (And sometimes, infamously, our own history.)
For example, a reference to "prohibition" in the rules had me scouring Wikipedia to learn that Sweden did and does restrict sales of hard liquor but not beer. Likewise, I had to check that Sweden had a state church, essentially Lutheran, to which everyone at least theoretically belongs.
Swedes and/or historians: are there other historical and cultural differences that we non-Scandinavians might need to know in order to play in (or run) the Mythic North? For example, were Spiritualism and seances as big in Sweden as it was in North America and Britain, or did wealthy and educated Swedes mostly reject supernatural beliefs beyond conventional piety?
: Compare to America's Prohibition Era from 1920 - 1933, which banned all alcohol except for "religious" and "medicinal" purposes, was widely flouted, fueled the growth of American organized crime, and is widely regarded as an unmitigated public policy disaster. (EDIT: OK, according to Wikipedia it did reduce alcohol consumption and related diseases, so maybe not a total failure.)
: The U.S. famously has "freedom of religion", wherein various religious factions, mostly Christian, feud with each other but can't actually outlaw their opponents.
