The Heathen Kingdom of Thorway is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Søren Henningsen with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, vat-grown people, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.934 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halmishamn. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thorwegian economy, worth 239 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 123,843 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. 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.

Thorway is ranked 15,521st in the world and 760th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 234.25 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
