The Heathen Kingdom of Thorway is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Søren Henningsen with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.524 billion Thorwegians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Thorwegian economy, worth 366 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 145,203 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.
Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Thorway flights to avoid the pay lavatories, many believe that Søren Henningsen rules by divine right, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Thorway's national animal is the Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Heathenry.
