The Imperial Realm of Southern-Nordic States is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Newman with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.505 billion Imperial Nords have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordica. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Nordic economy, worth 617 trillion Imperial Units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,973 Imperial Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Imperial Nordic pirates, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern-Nordic States's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christian-Methodism.

Southern-Nordic States is ranked 238,281st in the world and 188th in New Western Empire for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 29.88 Whatever.
