The United Kingdoms of Norgsveldet is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Johanna Sverdrup with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.523 billion Norgsveldetians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osfjord. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norgsveldetian economy, worth 825 trillion United Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,386 United Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending is on the increase, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norgsveldet's national animal is the Norse Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Asatru.

Norgsveldet is ranked 27,967th in the world and 832nd in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.36 Bank.
