The Commonwealth of The Nordic 5 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Astrid Andersdotter with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.555 billion Scandinavians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Scandinavian economy, worth 383 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,763 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

New government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Nordic 5's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Various types of Christianity.

The Nordic 5 is ranked 18,488th in the world and 1,043rd in Balder for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,028.94 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
