The Kingdom of Noordenstaat is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.406 billion Noordenstaatians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Koningstad. The average income tax rate is 33.6%.

The very strong Noordenstaatian economy, worth 917 trillion Kroons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 63,692 Kroons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, more and more students are taking up a career in medicine, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noordenstaat's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Noordenstaat is ranked 118,057th in the world and 3rd in Astyrian Probation for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 989.96 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
