The Nation of NorgiestoileckylockJ is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Newt Gingrich with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 5.285 billion Norgs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jockdylilyrewd. The average income tax rate is 74.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Norgian economy, worth 925 trillion falrens a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 175,058 falrens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, a government program is underway to revitalize NorgiestoileckylockJ's beaches, and you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NorgiestoileckylockJ's national animal is the hippopotamus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

NorgiestoileckylockJ is ranked 222,605th in the world and 119th in South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.54 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
