The Empire of Nidarvellir is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Odin with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service. Its hard-nosed population of 6.37 billion 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 Book Publishing.

Builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 922nd in 10000 Islands and 114,558th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
