Regional Influence: Diplomat
Location: Orbis Terrae
The Dominion of Norad is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its enforced nudity, frequent executions, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-working population of 3.98 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.5%.
The powerhouse Noradian economy, worth 210 trillion Coins a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 52,863 Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.
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 well under control, thanks to a capable 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.
