The Land of The Norion is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jazz with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.28 billion Norionians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norion City. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Norionian economy, worth 74.8 trillion uwus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 58,415 uwus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, the Norionian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, extreme political groups are outlawed, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of The Norion's radio stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Norion's national animal is the worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Mitski.
