The Much love from Polar of Polar Svalbard is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Consul Bellum with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.554 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 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svalbardian economy, worth 954 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 171,813 Polars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. 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 66,847th in the world and 155th in The Western Isles for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,192.18 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
