The Fiefdom of Clan Frostbeard is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.463 billion Clan Frostbeardians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khazād-gund. The average income tax rate is 62.1%.

The all-consuming Clan Frostbeardian economy, worth 164 trillion Gold Tokens a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,777 Gold Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, and trick-or-treaters and circus clowns have been arrested under suspicion of being renegade vigilantes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clan Frostbeard's national animal is the Bronze-Scaled Whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Clan Frostbeard is ranked 93,457th in the world and 39th in Middle Earth for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 0.2 Bank.
