Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population1.011 billion


The Holy Empire of Norostilors is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The compassionate population of 1.011 billion Norostilorsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 65.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Norostilorsian economy, worth 56.5 trillion guildents a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,847 guildents, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison overcrowding is being addressed with a series of short sharp shocks, the government funds large training centres to turn swans into functioning members of society, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norostilors's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Norostilors is ranked 52,159th in the world and 2,657th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,009.54 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
