The Resolution-Printing Offices of Magecastle Embassy Building A5 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ambassador Spencer Hemming with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, disturbing lack of elderly people, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.193 billion Ice WA Mission Staff 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Magecastle Embassy Complex. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.2%.

The strong Ice economy, worth 69.0 trillion guineas a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 57,800 guineas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 188,512 per year while the poor average 13,335, a ratio of 14.1 to 1.

Mostly women are seen and not heard, the national arsenal is full of sound and fury signifying nothing, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Magecastle Embassy Building A5's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Order of Klyprer.

Magecastle Embassy Building A5 is ranked 43,542nd in the world and 14th in Stargate for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,089.1 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
