The Betrygge Rāvenriket of Nordustra is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kaj Finesnes-Sjælvársson with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.475 billion Nōrdustrāns love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nattfáravík. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nordustran economy, worth 181 trillion krystils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,176 krystils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, Kaj Finesnes-Sjælvársson's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordustra's national animal is the five-legged ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity and Fáuna-Spiritsm.

Nordustra is ranked 267,041st in the world and 259th in Forest for Most Avoided, scoring 0.61 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
