The Imperium of Nordenvic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Julius Riversage with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.431 billion Nords are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nordenvician economy, worth 617 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. Average income is an amazing 254,151 Nords, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

The fate of the world literally rests on Emperor Julius Riversage's fingers, the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. 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 162,865th in the world and 198th in The Alterran Republic for Least Corrupt Governments, with 19.16 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
