Ver Norge

Population1.822 billion


The Free Land of Ver Norge is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.822 billion Ver Norgeans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ver Norgean economy, worth 358 trillion Memes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 196,807 Memes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 868,114 per year while the poor average 27,959, a ratio of 31.0 to 1.

The government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. Crime is totally unknown. Ver Norge's national animal is the Hedgehog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ver Norge is ranked 156,045th in the world and 5,994th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 44.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
