The Noristoniaka of Noristoniaka is a massive, genial nation, ruled by ├vaan Zem├Ątsžlov├┐─ with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.757 billion Karjaži enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pjetažńvodsk. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Karelian economy, worth 699 trillion somńs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 186,277 somńs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Noristoniaka" at foreigners, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in ├vaan Zem├Ątsžlov├┐─'s bedroom, they who do not work shall not eat, and artists are pillars of society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noristoniaka's national animal is the cardinal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Russian Orthodoxy.

Noristoniaka is ranked 44,250th in the world and 335th in Europe for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,866.08 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
