The Queendom of Kaldrbuth is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lady Ástríðr Vǫlsungrsdóttir-Vinter XI with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.877 billion Norses enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hrafnheimr. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kaldrbuthian economy, worth 298 trillion KKrs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,890 KKrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime is totally unknown. Kaldrbuth's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Norse Polytheism.

Kaldrbuth is ranked 13,453rd in the world and 278th in The East Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
