The Republic of Ice and Tinian is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Icelus with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.502 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, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ice and Tinianian economy, worth 507 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 144,775 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

All footpaths have tollbooths, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Capital City Times is sold out, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ice and Tinian's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ecclesiarchy.

Ice and Tinian is ranked 168,692nd in the world and 9,469th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -10.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
