The New Glacial Confederation of Ejyafjallajokull is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Democratic Labour Party with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.009 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, socially-minded 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 96%. 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.

The arms industry has been shut down in a surge of pacifism, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. 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 3,032nd in the Rejected Realms and 110,075th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -39 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
