The Republic of Norgenlandek is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, prohibition of alcohol, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 240 million Norgenlandekians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Norgenlandekian economy, worth 4.16 trillion sjelers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 17,331 sjelers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, and homosexuality has been banned to prevent the spread of homosexuality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norgenlandek's national animal is the moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Norgenlandek is ranked 114,629th in the world and 1,722nd in 10000 Islands for Longest Average Lifespans, with 70.61 Years.
