The Community of Norelea is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 660 million Noreleans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Figwine. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Norelean economy, worth 19.0 trillion barters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,737 barters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the only legal elections are for student body president, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Norelea's national animal is the pack mule, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Norelea is ranked 36,712th in the world and 184th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Drug Use, scoring 103.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
