The Resolution-Printing Offices of Magecastle Embassy Building A5 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ambassador Spencer Hemming with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and feral children. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.231 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 33.0%.

The strong Ice economy, worth 71.8 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 58,297 guineas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 188,409 per year while the poor average 13,631, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, small shoes often wash up on the beach, commemoration of the Great Cities of the World War costs almost as much as the war itself, and pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Ice roads. 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 76,641st in the world and 3,262nd in Cities of the World for Most Extreme, scoring 26.64 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
