The Bundesrepublik of Nordrym is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Thomasen von Münchenhägen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.763 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Münchenhägen. The average income tax rate is 77.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Nordic economy, worth a remarkable 1,823 trillion Nordmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led 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 186,725 Nordmarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

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 5,394th in the world and 324th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.26 on the Human Development Index.
