The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Executive Chairman Niel with an even hand, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.686 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 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. The average income tax rate is 84%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Coberg, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. 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 57th in Ankh Mauta and 119,789th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -166 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
