The Bundesrepublik of Nordrym is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Thomasen von Münchenhägen with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.139 billion Nordmen enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Münchenhägen. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nordic economy, worth a remarkable 1,992 trillion Nordmarks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,880 Nordmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Nordrym is often a lifetime appointment, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, and there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship. Crime is totally unknown. Nordrym's national animal is the Nordic Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nordrym is ranked 10,063rd in the world and 556th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.41 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
