Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Republic of Norstal is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Eirson with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 17.98 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 2.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Norsican economy, worth a remarkable 5,015 trillion Standardized Norses a year, 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 278,950 Standardized Norses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Coberg to enjoy their national art. 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 2,695th in the world and 5th in Ankh Mauta for Highest Poor Incomes, with 132,921.8 Standard Monetary Units.
