The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, safe 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 14.135 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, corrupt 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

Minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, the government is reining in public spending, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. 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 21st in Ankh Mauta and 14,623rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 12 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
