The New Glacial Confederation of Ejyafjallajokull is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the Ejyafjallajokull Utilities' Party with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.623 billion Ejyafjallajokullianss enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 94%. 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 Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Ejyafjallajokull's radio stations, the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, KirkjubŠjarklaustur spends billions upgrading public transport, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Ejyafjallajokullian Krˇna mansions. 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 1st in Iceland and 7,179th in the world for Best Weather, with 130 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
