The Empire of Norgaardia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.347 billion Norgaardians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The very strong Norgaardian economy, worth 96.8 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 71,827 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 245,343 per year while the poor average 15,468, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, cloning has been banned, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, and trust-fund babies line up for places in community college. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Norgaardia's national animal is the Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Norgaardia is ranked 141,841st in the world and 5th in The Okchi Union for Largest Black Market, with 93.9 billion Standard Monetary Units.
