Norgenlandek

Population483 million

The Republic of Norgenlandek is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 483 million Norgenlandekians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Norgenlandekian economy, worth 12.3 trillion sjelers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is 25,478 sjelers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norgenlandek's national animal is the moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Norgenlandek is ranked 186,887th in the world and 1,551st in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
