The Intergalactic Pirate Nation of Norfair is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ridley with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 800 million Norfairians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lower Norfair. The average income tax rate is 26.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Norfairian economy, worth 65.0 trillion Mochtroids a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,304 Mochtroids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, news headlines usually include p-values, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Norfair's national animal is the Metroid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
