The Northern Provinces of Icetropical is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Chancellor Kristoff Jˇhannesson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.576 billion Icetropicalians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rekyjavik. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Icetropicalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,093 trillion kunas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 238,883 kunas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, citizens must pay to enjoy Icetropical's pristine beaches, restaurateurs put a lot of effort into persuading customers to accept wafer-thin mints, and the might of the entire Icetropicalian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icetropical's national animal is the polar bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christanity.

Icetropical is ranked 174,506th in the world and 23rd in United Nations of Earthlings for Most Inclusive, scoring 5.56 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
