The Colony of Nyborgen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gro Harlam Nylant with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.739 billion Nyborgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nyvik. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Nyborgian economy, worth 549 trillion Bokmals a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,278 Bokmals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", conspiracy theorists allege Nyvik's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and the World Colony Games have been won again by Nyborgen as no other country cares enough to compete. Crime is totally unknown. Nyborgen's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Nyborgen is ranked 161,191st in the world and 91st in New Europe for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 328.88 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
