The Iridium Empire of Noristoniaka is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Olesen with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 1.007 billion NarveiŖ are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RÝrvik. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Narvish economy, worth 82.3 trillion Narvish Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 81,765 Narvish Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime is totally unknown. Noristoniaka's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Shintō.

Noristoniaka is ranked 24,386th in the world and 331st in Europe for Largest Governments, scoring 24.39 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
