Just a quick comment to this - the setting texts are written by an American (Joe LeFavi), not a Swedish person.
Thanks for pointing it out Tomas! I had assumed the material LeFavi provided went through further adjustments and editing in Sweden to fit the game.
It does leave me a bit perplexed, though.
There are passages here and there, a few of which @jlaakso has highlighted in this and other comments threads, that I feel would have been entirely natural to expect, perhaps even inevitable, had they been written from the perspective of a Swedish political and cultural context.
For them to have been written from an American viewpoint, however … feels like they probably would need to have come just a bit from the left side of the American mainstream.
