The Most Serene Republic of Iceman is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bobby Drake with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, enforced nudity, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 23.098 billion Icemanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Social Policy, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystalline City. The average income tax rate is 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Icemanian economy, worth 643 trillion ice shards a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 27,870 ice shards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, a government program is underway to revitalize Iceman's beaches, and the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Iceman's national animal is the ice dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Iceman is ranked 55,094th in the world and 2nd in The Avengers for Smartest Citizens, with 39.18 quips per hour.
