The United Kingdoms of Norgsveldet is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Johanna Sverdrup with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.189 billion Norgsveldetians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 54.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Norgsveldetian economy, worth 665 trillion United Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,757 United Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 105,629th in the world and 3,934th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 46.22 on the Rand Index.
