The Commonwealth of Norbarch is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by PM Athur Lockwood with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.536 billion Norbarchians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lockwood city. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norbarchian economy, worth 177 trillion Euros 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,328 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, and hordes of tourists are ruining the environment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norbarch's national animal is the Orang Utan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Norbarch is ranked 90,653rd in the world and 586th in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 134,182 Standard Monetary Units.
