The Stratocratic Republic of Icrum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arbiter Audhild Marchand-Yngvildr with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.538 billion Icrumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vacaria. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Icrumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,202 trillion Prints a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 175,704 Prints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, bins outnumber trees in city parks, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, and both criminals and civilians are DOA. Crime is totally unknown. Icrum's national animal is the South Icrumian Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Icrumian Ethreism.

Icrum is ranked 27,200th in the world and 3rd in Austritaria for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 7.26 Bank.
