The Royal Grímsvötnic Kingdom of Ejyafjallajokull is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Krýsuvík VII with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.028 billion Ejyafjallajokullians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirkjubćjarklaustur. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ejyafjallajokullian economy, worth a remarkable 1,969 trillion Ejyafjallajokullian Krónas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 178,634 Ejyafjallajokullian Krónas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, King Krýsuvík VII's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, the comic book series 'King Krýsuvík VII and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ejyafjallajokull's national animal is the Great Ejyafjallajokullian Auk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Ejyafjallajokull is ranked 70,659th in the world and 25th in Scandinavia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,224.05 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
