The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Executive Chairman Niel with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 16.733 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 are ignored. 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 4,689 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 280,278 Standardized Norses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. 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 5th in Ankh Mauta and 46,372nd in the world for Most Average, scoring 1,013 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
