Ice and Fires

Population24.613 billion



The Graveyards of Ice and Fires is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 24.613 billion Ice and Firesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Welfare, with Spirituality, Environment, and Education also on the agenda, while Industry and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of colorado. The average income tax rate is 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ice and Firesian economy, worth 527 trillion biscuits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 21,446 biscuits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, tigers with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Ice and Fires's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ice and Fires is ranked 255,923rd in the world and 8th in Grand Central for Most Patriotic, with 0.85 flags saluted per person per day.
