Frozen Forests

Population1.34 billion

AnimalBorris the snowman

The Republic of Frozen Forests is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.34 billion The Frozen live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Education, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The strong Frozen economy, worth 74.4 trillion Icicles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 55,492 Icicles, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 311,315 per year while the poor average 4,900, a ratio of 63.5 to 1.

It's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', and medical lawsuits are out of control. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Frozen Forests's national animal is the Borris the snowman, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Frozen Forests is ranked 41,917th in the world and 3rd in United roleplay authority for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
