The Kingdom of Nortainland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Alexander II with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, lack of airports, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.126 billion Norten are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lendert-with-Cadell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88.1%.

The powerhouse Nortan economy, worth 720 trillion pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 78,966 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nortainland's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Nortend.

Nortainland is ranked 119,890th in the world and 1st in Atlania for Most Politically Free, scoring 23.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
