The Kingdom of Hell Freezing is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jack Frost with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 32.143 billion Hell Freezingians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 23.7%.

The very strong Hell Freezingian economy, worth a remarkable 1,136 trillion anthracites a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,355 anthracites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hotels often double as quarantine zones, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Hell Freezing's national animal is the little devil and its national religion is Monotheism.

Hell Freezing is ranked 200,253rd in the world and 7th in The Kingdom of Burgundy for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -5.85 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
