The Vote For of Glaciosia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Glacio Revera with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 11.304 billion Glaciosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glaciem. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glaciosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,322 trillion Glaciosan Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,967 Glaciosan Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, heavily-laden pregnant women are told they can manage, and a spate of enforced closures has left 'Government FM' as the nation's only radio station. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glaciosia's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Glaciosia is ranked 13,194th in the world and 35th in The Union of Democratic States for Smartest Citizens, with 79.32 quips per hour.
