The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Executive Chairman Niel with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.356 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Commerce and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coberg. The average income tax rate is 83%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, the state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, and women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norstal's national animal is the swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Universalism, and its currency is the Standardized Norse.

Norstal is ranked 29th in Ankh Mauta and 37,708th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
