The Kingdom of Norbis is a huge, safe nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 604 million Norbisians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armis. The average income tax rate is 29.4%.

The powerhouse Norbisian economy, worth 56.5 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 93,547 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Vaccinations are mandatory, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", Norbis has designated Armis as its capital city, and international tensions are high as Norbis threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norbis's national animal is the Swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Norbis is ranked 108,490th in the world and 4,611th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 955.78 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
