The Federated Isles of Glaciosia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Glacio Revera with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.052 billion Glaciosians 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glaciem. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glaciosian economy, worth 846 trillion Glaciosan Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,057 Glaciosan Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Glaciosian politicians, and urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens. 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 1,743rd in the world and 3rd in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,554.2 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
