The Kingdom of Nordkrusen is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Fredrik Karl af Brahe-Hohenzollern with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.954 billion Northlanders 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erikshamn. The average income tax rate is 40.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nordkrussian economy, worth 411 trillion Riksdalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,148 Riksdalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, alcoholics are lauded as national benefactors within the halls of the Ministry of Finance, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordkrusen's national animal is the Royal Griffon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Nordkrusen is ranked 122,446th in the world and 11th in Tyran for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 56.33 Workforce Participation Rate.
