Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 museums and concert halls, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 29.036 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 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norvikelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,238 trillion vikadollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 77,107 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 168,450th in the world and 82nd in Wysteria for Most Avoided, scoring 0.55 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
