The Free Land of Bjournson is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 335 million Bjournsonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bjournson City. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Bjournsonian economy, worth 18.6 trillion Bergs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 55,431 Bergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, every workday begins with group therapy, and ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bjournson's national animal is the Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bjournson is ranked 24,435th in the world and 720th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 88.18 Years.
