The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Executive Chairman Niel with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.811 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 91%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Norstal, private law firms are unheard of, Norstal is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and discarded pennies litter the streets. 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 56th in Ankh Mauta and 106,278th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -14 on the Enoch Index.
