The Iridium Empire of Noristoniaka is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Olesen with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1 billion Narveiß are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rørvik. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Narvish economy, worth 80.5 trillion Narvish Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 80,549 Narvish Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emperor Olesen is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, Shintō has been named as Noristoniaka's national religion, parties on cruise ships go off with a real bang, and Narvish scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime is totally unknown. Noristoniaka's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Shintō.

Noristoniaka is ranked 182,478th in the world and 725th in Europe for Fattest Citizens, with 8.93 Obesity Rate.
