Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy blue Kingdom of The Icemark is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Edward Lindenshield with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.183 billion Northerners are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frostmarris. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient The Icemarkian economy, worth 718 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 100,003 Gold Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Icemark's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Druid Wiccanism And Odinism.

The Icemark is ranked 1st in The Northern Continent and 25,003rd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 139 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
