The Northern Wonderland of Godefargen is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Karl IV Kristian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.331 billion Godefargenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Örgenborg. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Godefargenian economy, worth 737 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,276 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, turnstile jumpers grow up to be tax cheats, and Godefargen has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Godefargen's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Godefargen is ranked 251,503rd in the world and 995th in Europe for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.88 crimes per hour.
