The Queen's State of Terre Glace is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26.327 billion Terre Glaceans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The powerhouse Terre Glacean economy, worth a remarkable 1,406 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is 53,422 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 363,210 per year while the poor average 2,870, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, all tariffs have been abolished, and most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Terre Glace's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Terre Glace is ranked 31,522nd in the world and 2nd in Algeria for Largest Black Market, with 5.85 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
