The Heathen Kingdom of Thorway is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Søren Henningsen with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.889 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halmishamn. The average income tax rate is 47.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thorwegian economy, worth 442 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,245 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", news headlines usually include p-values, the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. 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 42,331st in the world and 2,440th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 71.03 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
