The Kingdom of Great Nortend is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Alexander II with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.215 billion Nortchmen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lendert-with-Cadell. The average income tax rate is 47.8%.

The very strong Erbonian economy, worth 262 trillion pound martens a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 62,307 pound martens, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Nortend's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Nortend.

Great Nortend is ranked 49,277th in the world and 18th in Astyria for Highest Economic Output, with 262 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
