The Kingdom of Ostrov Pestsa is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 697 million Polars love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ledyanograd. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Polar economy, worth 72.7 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 104,312 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, monochrome green ECO-OP products adorn the supermarket shelves, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ostrov Pestsa's national animal is the arctic fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ostrov Pestsa is ranked 194,765th in the world and 316th in Forest for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
