The Republic Democracy of Norvine is a massive, devout nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.304 billion Norvineans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trenton. The average income tax rate is 47%, but much higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, and Silver-backed Gorilla is one of the most popular forenames in Norvine. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norvine's national animal is the Silver-backed Gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Euronities.
