The Norse Kingdom of Yarosluv is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Haakon VIII with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 14.112 billion Norsemen are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oslo. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norse economy, worth a remarkable 3,766 trillion Norse kroner a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 266,902 Norse kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, diabetics find the contents of their medications hard to stomach, and racial supremacists have a burning desire to deal with immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Yarosluv's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Norr.

Yarosluv is ranked 30,100th in the world and 35th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.2 Bank.
