Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Norsefire Protectorate of The Old English Order is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High Chancellor Peter Creedy with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.697 billion English are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.7%.

The frighteningly efficient English economy, worth 813 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 220,167 Pound Sterlings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 926,365 per year while the poor average 33,956, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Old English Order's national animal is the Harrier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Rationalism.

The Old English Order is ranked 1st in The Norsefire Sphere of Inflence and 118,314th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -229 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
