The Much love from Polar of Polar Svalbard is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Klark Zeltargo with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.935 billion Svalbardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svalbardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,085 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 174,772 Polars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Klark Zeltargo's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and it is well recognised that you can't sustain communism without a bit of spirit. 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 151,263rd in the world and 120th in The Western Isles for Most Authoritarian, with 493.46 milliStalins.
