The Republic of Nordaustlandet is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 350 million Nordaustlandetians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Nordaustlandetian economy, worth 11.4 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 32,673 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Nordaustlandet' is a smash hit, and purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordaustlandet's national animal is the Harp Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nordaustlandet is ranked 34,166th in the world and 100th in The Union of Democratic States for Best Weather, with 128 Meters Of Sunlight.
