Minor language app - Localization requirements?

Setup:

*I have an app where all resources are in Swedish only (sprites etc), but I have not done any localization on it, eg nothing special added in xcode, no strings-file etc.

*My default language in itunes connect is English.

*I intend to release it on the Swedish market only.

*I have not added any localization in itunes, just the Swedish text in the
default (english I guess?) form


Will this fly? Or do I need to do something extra, say, add Swedish localization in itunes and have a dummy-text on the english one (like 'This app is in Swedish only')? Do I need to add Swedish localization in xcode to the app and have it to be identical to the default one, since both will be Swedish?

Would love some help, anyone done something like this? I think there are apps out there that only support one minor language.

Just in case somebody looks at this thread by searching and wants to know:

It did fly, as in that the app got approved
http://itunes.apple.com/se/app/hanga-gubbe-stora-ordspelet/id458977086?mt=8

Only problem is that it says "Language: English" on the side but it should be obvious looking at the description that it is in Swedish.
