The Empire of Rising Cold of Icewindia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Wolfen 1st with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.356 billion Icewindians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Icewindian economy, worth 225 trillion Ice Stones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 35,508 Ice Stones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emperor Wolfen 1st has just been declared ruler of Icewindia in an international press conference, Shinism has been named as Icewindia's national religion, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, and no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icewindia's national animal is the Penguins, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Shinism.

Icewindia is ranked 30,022nd in the world and 57th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,357.93 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
