The Itchy Red Patch of Norvikeland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Peoples Person of Odin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 30.66 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 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norvikelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,372 trillion vikadollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 77,390 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 17,594th in the world and 53rd in Wysteria for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 221.37 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
