The United Socialist States of Norwegian SSR is a large, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 56 million Norwegians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.8%.

The Norwegian economy, worth 2.51 trillion Norwegian Kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,815 Norwegian Kronor, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

All technology must be personally blessed by religious officials before purchase, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, and hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norwegian SSR's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Norwegian SSR is ranked 153,163rd in the world and 6,329th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 0.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
