The Federal Republic of Noralia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Ivan Lopez with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 6.972 billion Noralians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitol City. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noralian economy, worth 993 trillion Noralian Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,494 Noralian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, the weather is the nation's most risqué topic of conversation, and Noralian husbands are dead good at fathering kids. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noralia's national animal is the Noralian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Noralia is ranked 4,440th in the world and 188th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 92.85 on the Human Development Index.
