1 As of the Treaty of Fredrikshavn (1889)


Norvegia is a small kingdom in Northern Europe, located where Østfold County (Norway) and bordering parts of Sweden were located before the Treaty of Fredrikshavn was signed in 1889.

Economy Edit

The Norvegians (not to be confused with Norwegians, inhabitants of Norway) have built a massive welfare society, where everybody gets free education and healthcare, everything built upon trade with the neightbouring countries. As the area doesn't occupy any oil or gas resources, the Norvegians have financed their welfare with tax free trade, as Norwegians and Swedes comes to Norvegia to buy cheap products in groceries near the border. The government of Norvegia has also set low vagues for foreign (and domestic) corporations to etablish, so many of the corporations found in larger cities are well-known Scandinavian companies, attracted by the low taxes. The largest traditional sector within Norvegian economics is agriculture.

Administrative divisions Edit

Norvegia is divided into several municipalities (kommuner, the word itself comes from the Latin word commune = mutual/common), and much power is given to those. Only some few of them have further subdivisions, often because of large differences between certain parts of a municipality, for instance the island of Vågøy (part of Fredrikshavn municipality), where the islanders refused to merge with the rest of the metropolian area if they didn't get any special influence on their island. To meet this demand, the politicians in Fredrikshavn let Vågøy be an independent (civil) parish (sogn). That mean that the islanders takes part in the same local elections as the rest of the area, but they also elect an own representative to the central City Council in Fredrikshavn, so they are (in fact) guaranteed that they have at least one representative from the island. This is also found in some few other municipalities too, but is quite rare.
