The Itchy Red Patch of Norvikeland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Peoples Person of Odin with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 36.061 billion Norvikelandingers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norvikelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,909 trillion vikadollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,686 vikadollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been recorded, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norvikeland's national animal is the purple clad minotaur, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Norvikeland is ranked 200,406th in the world and 61st in Wysteria for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
