Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Corporations of Norstal is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Executive Chairman Niel with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 15.296 billion Norsicans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 4,253 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 278,094 Standardized Norses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are gradually adapting to the alien premise of paying wages to their workers, young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', Executive Chairman Niel's mistress is the belle at many state balls, and the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone. 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 10th in Ankh Mauta and 7,606th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 46.72 Net Tourists per hour.
