The Corrupted Lands of Icenscar is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Raev with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.108 billion Icenscarians 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, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murainn. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Icenscarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,149 trillion Shards a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 236,002 Shards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emigrants arrive on foreign shores with nothing but pocket sand, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icenscar's national animal is the Bree Bree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Icenscar is ranked 161,245th in the world and 7th in The Exarchal Republic for Most Extreme, scoring 13.11 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
