The Northern Warband of Miklagard is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.887 billion Miklagardians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The strong Miklagardian economy, worth 266 trillion gelds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 68,633 gelds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 450,154 per year while the poor average 4,097, a ratio of 109 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, voting is voluntary, all tariffs have been abolished, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Miklagard's national animal is the seax, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Miklagard is ranked 135,593rd in the world and 6th in Raxulan Empire for Most Patriotic, with 11.57 flags saluted per person per day.
