The Queen Of the Waltz of Feu de Glace is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Poisson Marion Bouillon with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.843 billion Feu de Glaceans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Στοιχειώδης Γη. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Feu de Glacean economy, worth a remarkable 2,718 trillion chips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 211,684 chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is known as the cheapskates of Refugia, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is totally unknown. Feu de Glace's national animal is the Superb Bird of Paradise, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Creed of the Bocci Playing Chihuahuas.

Feu de Glace is ranked 81st in the world and 1st in Refugia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 44,038.48 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
