Government on role playing

In Sweden everything must be classified by government; otherwise it doesn't exist. Back in 97 Ungdomsstyrelsen produced this paper (in Swedish) about roleplaying as a hobby activity in Sweden. I guess (I hope!) that such a paper would look quite different if written today. It's not meant to be read by role players, but that makes it an even more fun read for us.

In addition to the obligatory what is role playing there is also some statistics. They claim that around 20 000 people in Sweden engage in role playing regurlarly. Mor interesting, though, they estimate that approximately 200 000 young Swedes people have played at least one tiume during the last year. It seems like an extremely high number, but if it's true it should be higher now.
