OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The New Glacial Confederation of Ejyafjallajokull is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Democratic Labour Party with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.817 billion Ejyafjallajokullians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KirkjubŠjarklaustur. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Much of Ejyafjallajokull's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ejyafjallajokull's national animal is the Great Auk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Catholicism but it is virtually obsolete, and its currency is the Ejyafjallajokullian Krˇna.

Ejyafjallajokull is ranked 11th in The Nordic Federation and 95,873rd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -23.9 Insults Per Minute (net).
