The Imperium of Nordenvic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Julius Riversage with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.27 billion Nords 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, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adro. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nordenvician economy, worth 548 trillion Nords a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 241,410 Nords, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, movie references are legally admissible in court, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordenvic's national animal is the Wyvern, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of Adom.

Nordenvic is ranked 119,438th in the world and 249th in Enadia for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 35.18 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
