The Norse Kingdom of Talvanya is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Erik Ragnarsson with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, lack of airports, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.095 billion Talvanyans 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toslo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.5%.

The powerhouse Talvanyan economy, worth 176 trillion Fé Coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,032 Fé Coins, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Untold millions of Fé Coins are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, you can tell when Talvanyans are being snarky by the fact their lips are moving, shirts-versus-skins games are now skins-versus-skins games, and Talvanya successfully hosted the Sceniverse Olympics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talvanya's national animal is the Gullinkambi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Norse Mythology.

Talvanya is ranked 58,074th in the world and 2nd in Sceniverse for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.86 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
