Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Itchy Red Patch of Norvikeland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Peoples Person of Odin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 26.889 billion Norvikelandingers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norvikelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,067 trillion vikadollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,907 vikadollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little 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 179,570th in the world and 77th in Wysteria for Most Primitive, scoring -203.57 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
