Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Itchy Red Patch of Norvikeland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Peoples Person of Odin with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 25.438 billion Norvikelandingers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Norvikelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,914 trillion vikadollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,277 vikadollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been recorded, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norvikeland's national animal is the purple clad minotaur, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Norvikeland is ranked 93rd in Wysteria and 107,728th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -140 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
