The Demokratisk Republikk of Noristoniaka is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Henriksen with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 776 million Nærvé are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rørvik. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nærvish economy, worth 66.0 trillion Krøns 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. 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 85,029 Krøns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engineers preemptively order lawyers after every power cut, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, school football matches are usually five-a-side, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime is totally unknown. Noristoniaka's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Noristoniaka is ranked 115,592nd in the world and 762nd in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 106,460 Standard Monetary Units.
