The Third Republic of Nordengrund is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Abel Franz with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.51 billion Nords 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 relatively small government prioritizes Law & Order, with Environment and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kustenburg. The average income tax rate is 9.3%.

The thriving Nordian economy, worth 718 trillion Zahlens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 49,500 Zahlens, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, the army is spending millions cloning khaki-colored dinosaurs, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Nordengrund's national animal is the gray wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Evangelical Lutheran.

Nordengrund is ranked 55,663rd in the world and 4th in Union of Christian Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 55 on the Rand Index.
