The Resolution-Printing Offices of Magecastle Embassy Building A5 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ambassador Spencer Hemming with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.523 billion Ice WA Mission Staff are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, 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 14.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ice economy, worth 326 trillion guineas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 92,674 guineas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 589,346 per year while the poor average 6,024, a ratio of 97.8 to 1.

The weather in The Magecastle Embassy Complex is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', everybody's got wood thanks to Ambassador Spencer Hemming, beatboxing has replaced the 'Wilhelm scream' as the nation's most popular sound effect, and a mushroom a day keeps the sadness away. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 89,730th in the world and 4,787th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 953.11 milliStalins.
