The Kingdom of The Nordian is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Baldwin with an even hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, aversion to nipples, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.265 billion Nordians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Law & Order, with Welfare, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nord. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nordianian economy, worth 816 trillion silver coins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,843 silver coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, the sanitised and dull music festivals of The Nordian are famed for their reasonable volume levels, prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Nordian's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Nordian is ranked 156,603rd in the world and 20th in Regionless for Most Pro-Market, scoring 23.33 on the Rand Index.
