The Nobel Laureates of The Dark Norse is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Anders Jacobsen with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.364 billion Dark Norsemen 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 Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of K°benhavn. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dark Nordic economy, worth a remarkable 1,406 trillion Kr÷nas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 190,969 Kr÷nas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down, and halberds are common 18th birthday presents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dark Norse's national animal is the Troll, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Forn Si­r.

The Dark Norse is ranked 166,978th in the world and 20th in Zombie Research Institute for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -414.53 on the Hayek Index.
