The Much love from Polar of Polar Svalbard is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Consul Bellum with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 3.909 billion Svalbardians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alta. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svalbardian economy, worth 685 trillion Polars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,429 Polars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The number of judges has tripled in recent months, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polar Svalbard's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Polar Svalbard is ranked 13,936th in the world and 57th in The Western Isles for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,102.05 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
