OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Nidarvellir is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Odin with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 7.089 billion Nidarvellirians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgard. The average income tax rate is 79%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nidarvellir's national animal is the Skoll, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Odinism, and its currency is the Donk.

Nidarvellir is ranked 143rd in 10000 Islands and 6,471st in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 644 Net Tourists per hour.
