“You have one button. Ours is a nation of many buttons.”

Regional Influence: Envoy
The Itchy Red Patch of Norvikeland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Peoples Person of Odin with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.202 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
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 91%, 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.
