Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Novorden is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.266 billion Novordenians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 35.9%.

The Novordenian economy, worth 311 trillion Valutas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,938 Valutas, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and the Federal Council of Novorden has been announced as the new Head of State. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novorden's national animal is the Orca.

Novorden is ranked 43,583rd in the world and 1,339th in Balder for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,874.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
