Fredrik Reinfeldt is a Swedish neoliberal shill economist and lecturer that served as Prime Minister from 2006–2014. He became leader of the centre-right Moderate Party in 2003, and brought party ideology closer to the centre, resulting in a re-branding as "the New Moderates". A Sifo study found him "most admired man in Sweden" in 2006 with a peak approval rating of 57%, though support for his cabinet fluctuated widely throughout his term in office, particularly after advocating austerity following the 2008 crash. Reinfeldt has been described as the "Swedish David Cameron", which given Cameron took control of the Tories two years after Reinfeldt did the Moderates might not be that far-fetched. Reinfeldt's legacy as Moderate Party leader is divisive, in that people can't agree if he changed it or not. He has been described as cool and level-headed, "gentle, pensive and a good listener".[1]

...Which didn't translate into his appearances in DRAW Your Own Story 9, in which his spontaneous and ill-conceived decision to join the North Pole flag-planting race between Russia and Canada provoked the Swedish–American War. As punishment, Thorvald instituted a tax hike, leading Reinfeldt to suffer scorn from fellow Union national leaders... and they haven't forgotten.[2]

Reinfeldt is also notable for beating Barack Obama to the part-African-American ticket by virtue of his great-great-grandfather.[3]
