The Kingdom of Iciyetl is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Byron Karstein Baldo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.427 billion Iciyetlians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altair. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Iciyetlian economy, worth 846 trillion Hials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 191,134 Hials, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Byron Karstein Baldo's wardrobe, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and twins are held culpable for the actions of their siblings. Crime is totally unknown. Iciyetl's national animal is the Ice Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ancestor Worship.

Iciyetl is ranked 30,941st in the world and 9th in Queendom of Norway for Most Pro-Market, scoring 66.44 on the Rand Index.
