Greater Icelandia

The Social Democratic Paradise of Greater Icelandia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Wood with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.378 billion Scandinavians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oslo. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Icelandian economy, worth 168 trillion Krónas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,931 Krónas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime is totally unknown. Greater Icelandia's national animal is the Vulpes lagopus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greater Icelandia is ranked 226,701st in the world and 1,086th in Europe for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.92 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
