OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dominion of Norad is a massive, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.831 billion Noradians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30%. A healthy private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Norad City Times is sold out, protests are illegal, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, and citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norad's national animal is the Leopard, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the Coin.

Norad is ranked 10th in Orbis Terrae and 92,602nd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -3 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
