The Bourgeois Blues of Ice age coming is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.36 billion Ice age comingians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
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 Social Welfare, with areas such as Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 54%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Tourism.
Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the wreckages of bombed planes that litter Ice age coming are highly popular tourist destinations, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ice age coming's national animal is the idioteque, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the bunker.
