The So many flavors of Ice Cream Tiger is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Parry Gripp with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.631 billion Ice Cream Tigerians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jungle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ice Cream Tigerian economy, worth 173 trillion ice creams a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,280 ice creams, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity, government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Parry Gripp is not a crook, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and Parry Gripp can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ice Cream Tiger's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is music.

Ice Cream Tiger is ranked 22,981st in the world and 1st in Second Best Olympians for Most Developed, scoring 80.46 on the Human Development Index.
