The Nordic Union of Samnoreg is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Åslak B Amundsen with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.382 billion Samnorskar are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oslo. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Samnorska economy, worth 814 trillion Lm Landsmerkes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 110,322 Lm Landsmerkes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Homophobia is off the menu, the nation is Osiris's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters, there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Samnoreg's national animal is the Mountain Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Freedom of Religion.

Samnoreg is ranked 96,451st in the world and 4,139th in Osiris for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,184.51 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
