The Heathen Kingdom of Thorway is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Søren Henningsen with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and enslaved workforce. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.647 billion Thorwegians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Thorwegian economy, worth 628 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 172,259 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The hills are alive with the sound of ringtones, all prisons have been eliminated, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, and the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace. 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 48,169th in the world and 926th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 3.65 billion Capita.
