The Heathen Kingdom of Thorway is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Søren Henningsen with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.719 billion Thorwegians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halmishamn. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thorwegian economy, worth 849 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 180,040 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, love is a precious butterfly to be crushed under diplomatic protocol, walls don't have ears, and citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Thorway's national animal is the Rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Heathenry.

Thorway is ranked 7,598th in the world and 285th in The North Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
