The Imperial Elixian Republic of Norcourt is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Volus Valorrius Harkearean with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.922 billion Norcourtians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norcourtia. The average income tax rate is 91.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Norcourtian economy, worth a remarkable 1,289 trillion Kades a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 162,810 Kades, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, the most common doctor's prescription is "get out of my consulting room", and traffic tickets are punishable by 9000 push-ups. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norcourt's national animal is the Weaxer Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Elixian Code.

Norcourt is ranked 2,704th in the world and 1st in Federation of Allies for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 21,859.97 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
