Norbis

The Kingdom of Norbis is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 382 million Norbisians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.2%.

The powerhouse Norbisian economy, worth 35.7 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 93,536 Crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 272,663 per year while the poor average 25,362, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Gay men commonly complain about their time of the month, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, the might of the entire Norbisian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norbis's national animal is the Swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Norbis is ranked 28,934th in the world and 880th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 85.57 Years.
