The Third Nordic Republic of Visford is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 722 million Visfordeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonnotown Downtown. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Visfordian economy, worth 63.8 trillion Visfordean Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 88,319 Visfordean Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, and East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Visford's national animal is the Visford Black Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Visford is ranked 147,765th in the world and 585th in Europeia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 109,418 Standard Monetary Units.
