The Frozen Republic of New Iceland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Eirík the White with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 28.935 billion New Icelandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Iceland City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The frighteningly efficient New Icelandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,526 trillion Polar Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,867 Polar Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the New Icelandian language, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, and printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Iceland's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Endless Winter.

New Iceland is ranked 94,520th in the world and 8th in The New Meritocracy for Most Patriotic, with 14.11 flags saluted per person per day.
