Grettir Asmundarson

Population313 million

CurrencyNordic Penny

The Armed Republic of Grettir Asmundarson is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 313 million Norsemen are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Norsemen economy, worth 30.4 trillion Nordic Pennies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 97,113 Nordic Pennies, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and annual government budgets include a sizeable spend on "making things look fabulous". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grettir Asmundarson's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grettir Asmundarson is ranked 6,143rd in the world and 259th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,417.44 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
