The Dominion of Nornheim is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Odin with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.542 billion Nornheimians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heimsbrunnir. The average income tax rate is 24.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nornheimian economy, worth a remarkable 2,421 trillion coins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,616 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, news headlines usually include p-values, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and public enemies often walk home with spotless garments and crime records. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Nornheim's national animal is the snowfox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nornheim is ranked 185,993rd in the world and 84th in Equilism for Most Armed, with 0.23 Weapons Per Person.
