The Heathen Kingdom of Thorway is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Søren Henningsen with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.112 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 66.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Thorwegian economy, worth 745 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 181,317 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, it's said that Søren Henningsen can turn every pleasure into a chore, and people's charity begins and ends at home. 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 152,770th in the world and 8,586th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.87 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
