The Empire of Nordmarker is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Hans von Müller with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.637 billion Nordmarkerians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aalsa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Nordmarkerian economy, worth 361 trillion Florins a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 221,067 Florins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,216,234 per year while the poor average 20,383, a ratio of 59.7 to 1.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, nine out of ten citizens of Nordmarker answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordmarker's national animal is the cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Nordmarker is ranked 253,755th in the world and 1,475th in 10000 Islands for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -29 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
