The Republic of Normerk is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Swewayden with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 940 million Normerkians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oslockagen. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Normerkian economy, worth 84.7 trillion Tinks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 90,081 Tinks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, anti-government web sites are springing up, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Normerk's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Normerk is ranked 22,937th in the world and 303rd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 78.29 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
