The Mittleres Reich of Norlisond is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiser Erwin Kilroy von Klinkowström with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 877 million Norlisondians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lichtenbach. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.1%.

The strong Norlisondian economy, worth 62.3 trillion Sudthalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,991 Sudthalers, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norlisond's national animal is the Black Beaked Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Norlisond is ranked 92,631st in the world and 1st in Austnara for Most Pro-Market, scoring 43.75 on the Rand Index.
