The Technocratic Union of Frostguarde is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Fornost with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.892 billion Frostguardeans 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solace. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Frostguardean economy, worth a remarkable 7,327 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 368,352 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Frostguardean language, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, devotion to God is only skin-deep, and the doctor has cold hands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Frostguarde's national animal is the Arctic Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Old Religion.

Frostguarde is ranked 19,953rd in the world and 25th in Eurth for Most Developed, scoring 75.3 on the Human Development Index.
