The Ancient Order of Iceblade is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Serph Erudon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 987 million Icebladeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ursidea. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Icebladean economy, worth 97.5 trillion icetokens a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,734 icetokens, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, businessmen walk out of meetings halfway because their shift is over, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iceblade's national animal is the grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iceblade is ranked 33,787th in the world and 64th in Spiritus for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,712.73 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
