The Itchy Red Patch of Norvikeland is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Peoples Person of Odin with a fair hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.571 billion Norvikelandingers 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

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 the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the vikadollar.

Norvikeland is ranked 143rd in Wysteria and 104,136th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14 on the Hayek Index.
