The Royal Norwegian Navy Frigate of HNoMS Roald Amundsen is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The compassionate, devout population of 11.474 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, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 35.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The HNoMS Roald Amundsenian economy, worth 862 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, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, 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 75,162 Platinums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People's charity begins and ends at home, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. 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 85,317th in the world and 1,644th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,587.21 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
