The Much love from Polar of Polar Svalbard is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Klark Zeltargo with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 7.014 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 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svalbardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,256 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 179,143 Polars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Svalbardians, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, the death glare has replaced the handshake as a national greeting, and the Alta Police often confuse their exploding pens for real ones. 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 11,992nd in the world and 39th in The Western Isles for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 6,201.63 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
