The United Kingdom of Nornsmark is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.831 billion Norns are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Czeiss. The average income tax rate is 25.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Norn economy, worth 92.0 trillion Guilderns a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 50,254 Guilderns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and Leader has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nornsmark's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nornsmark is ranked 49,317th in the world and 7th in New Ausozera for Longest Average Lifespans, with 75.79 Years.
