The New Glacial Confederation of Ejyafjallajokull is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the Democratic Labour Party with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.804 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.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, teenage fathers are forced to join the army, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, and citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government. 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 12th in The Nordic Federation and 107,702nd in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
