The Dual Kingdom of The Greater Nordics is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Otto with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.456 billion Nordics are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Petersburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Nordic economy, worth 865 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 194,284 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, and a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Greater Nordics's national animal is the artic fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

The Greater Nordics is ranked 3,762nd in the world and 4th in Official European Union for Most Devout, with 3,973.81 Prayers Per Hour.
