The People's Republic of Noristoniaka is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Hans Olsen with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.804 billion Narvics enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petrozavodsk. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Narvic economy, worth 219 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 121,849 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Subscribing to the Benevolence Society for Impoverished Leaders is an effective way to dodge the draft, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, war vets look after war animals, and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noristoniaka's national animal is the Robin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Russian Orthodoxy.

Noristoniaka is ranked 13,852nd in the world and 223rd in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 88.63 law-abiding acts per hour.
