The Commonwealth of Nordisle is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Étienne Holm with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.772 billion Nordisleans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cap Baffin. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nordislean economy, worth 190 trillion Argents a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,359 Argents, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordisle's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nordisle is ranked 3,092nd in the world and 8th in New Western Empire for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 84 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
