Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Itchy Red Patch of Norvikeland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Peoples Person of Odin with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 24.688 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 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norvikelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,862 trillion vikadollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 75,423 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 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 125th in Wysteria and 133,203rd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -33 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
