The Kingdom of Greater Polar Republic is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Henrik Algavar II with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, rampant corporate plagiarism, and feral children. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.136 billion Polarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Juneau. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Polarian economy, worth 50.0 trillion Dogecoins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,057 Dogecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, Henrik Algavar II has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, thrift shops are closing their doors, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Greater Polar Republic's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Greater Polar Republic is ranked 119,314th in the world and 185th in The Union of Democratic States for Highest Drug Use, scoring 62.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
