The Heathen Kingdom of Thorway is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Søren Henningsen with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.247 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 52.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Thorwegian economy, worth 528 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 162,766 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.
Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, beggars on the street are often heard asking for spare votes, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, and torture is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious 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.
