The Holy Frozen Purple Empire of Glacikaldr is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Crown Prince Remus Raewyn with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.439 billion Glacikaldrians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dal'Kaldera. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glacikaldrian economy, worth 703 trillion candy canes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 204,611 candy canes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most, it's best not to ask what goes into Dal'Kaldera Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glacikaldr's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dramoon Zyonnism.

Glacikaldr is ranked 9,451st in the world and 186th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,429.73 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
