The Empire of Norgaardia is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic population of 128 million Norgaardians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government prioritizes Welfare, although Defense, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Public Transport are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The very strong Norgaardian economy, worth 8.68 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 67,785 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 221,364 per year while the poor average 15,609, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, and the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Norgaardia's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Norgaardia is ranked 35,655th in the world and 63rd in Thaecia for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12,990.74 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
