The Norsefire Protectorate of The Old English Order is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Chancellor Peter Creedy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.509 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 34.2%.

The frighteningly efficient English economy, worth 775 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 221,025 Pound Sterlings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 912,753 per year while the poor average 35,188, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, The Old English Order is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, punitive tariffs protect local industry, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. 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 111,447th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -1,062.2 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
