The Grand Norse Empire of Khuravia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Niklas II with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.46 billion Khuravians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keiservik. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Khuravian economy, worth a remarkable 3,343 trillion silvurmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 216,250 silvurmarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, and children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Khuravia's national animal is the great raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Northern deism.

Khuravia is ranked 208,256th in the world and 1,267th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -10.95 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
