The Empire of Ice and Tinian is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Icelus with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 4.483 billion Ice and Tinians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 4.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ice and Tinianian economy, worth 723 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,378 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Ice and Tinian, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ice and Tinian's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ecclesiarchy.
