The Kingdom of Noremark is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 229 million enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61%. A very small private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, a referendum must be held in order for any new law to be passed, and schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low. Noremark's national animal is the Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Kronet.
