The Queendom of IcarusCrossing is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ronda Terramunce with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, otherworldly petting zoo, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.174 billion Icarusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hakain's Crossing. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving IcarusCrossingian economy, worth 230 trillion elluns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,612 elluns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The election for Ronda Terramunce's office's janitor is heating up, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into IcarusCrossingian as 'your finger, you fool', and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IcarusCrossing's national animal is the wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

IcarusCrossing is ranked 105,483rd in the world and 7th in Union of the Kind Ones for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 736.85 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
