The Armed Republic of Grettir Asmundarson is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 319 million Norsemen are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Norsemen economy, worth 30.5 trillion Nordic Pennies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 95,725 Nordic Pennies, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, the mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grettir Asmundarson's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grettir Asmundarson is ranked 46,151st in the world and 1,502nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 9.53 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
