The Commonwealth of Noratia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 836 million Noratians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 45.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Noratian economy, worth 33.1 trillion Norats a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,647 Norats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been reports of people marrying housepets, all tariffs have been abolished, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noratia's national animal is the Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Noratia is ranked 99,135th in the world and 4,060th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 19.53 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
