The Royal Norwegian Navy Frigate of HNoMS Roald Amundsen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, devout population of 11.044 billion HNoMS Roald Amundsenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 35.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient HNoMS Roald Amundsenian economy, worth 590 trillion Platinums 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 53,479 Platinums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, and the big red machine has ground to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HNoMS Roald Amundsen's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

HNoMS Roald Amundsen is ranked 117,402nd in the world and 1,228th in Artificial Solar System for Most Politically Free, scoring 58 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
