The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Executive Chairman Niel with an even hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.04 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 is mainly concerned with 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 91%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision. 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 9th in Ankh Mauta and 4,637th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 109.8 Insults Per Minute (net).
