Population1.745 billion

The Commonwealth of Nordbejar is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mike Hall with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.745 billion Nordbejarans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norcross. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nordbejaran economy, worth 127 trillion Libras a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,006 Libras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, and Nordbejarans submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordbejar's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nordbejar is ranked 17,248th in the world and 546th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,442.36 Tourists Per Hour.
