The Kingdom of The Icemark is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by King Edward Lindenshield with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.148 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frostmarris. 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.

Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and large areas of The Icemark are not accessible by the public. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Icemark's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Druid Wiccanism And Odinism, and its currency is the Gold Piece.

The Icemark is ranked 3rd in The Northern Continent and 106,892nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -3 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
