The Frozen Disaster Area of Ice Storm is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Elsa the Snow Queen with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The cynical, devout population of 16.116 billion Ice Stormians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal. The average income tax rate is 33.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Ice Stormian economy, worth 729 trillion Ice cubes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,251 Ice cubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, Ice Storm has designated Crystal as its capital city, and Elsa the Snow Queen has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ice Storm's national animal is the Arctic Wolf.

Ice Storm is ranked 78,927th in the world and 31st in Jenny for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,481.07 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
