The Frozen Island of Redwood-Gabriel is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Gabriel the III with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.039 billion Redwood-Gabrielians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Homeyopolis. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Redwood-Gabrielian economy, worth 97.5 trillion Frozen Carters a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,879 Frozen Carters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Helicopter parenting is on the rise, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the government is avowedly secular, and government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Redwood-Gabriel's national animal is the Redwood Frozen Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Redwood-Gabriel is ranked 25,008th in the world and 9th in Ridgefield for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 3,369 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
