Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Executive Chairman Niel with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 15.894 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coberg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Norsican economy, worth a remarkable 4,472 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 281,417 Standardized Norses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous. 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 4th in Ankh Mauta and 1,115th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 11 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
