Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Executive Chairman Niel with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 16.256 billion Norsicans 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 tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coberg. The average income tax rate is 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Norsican economy, worth a remarkable 4,576 trillion Standardized Norses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 281,500 Standardized Norses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous. Crime is totally unknown. Norstal's national animal is the swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Universalism.

Norstal is ranked 1st in Ankh Mauta and 266th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 1,736 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
