The Eternal Union of The Ice States is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Pedro Noltensmeier I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.102 billion Icers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, although Defense and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southport City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ice economy, worth 695 trillion Devonian Aiers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,460 Devonian Aiers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 647,824 per year while the poor average 30,632, a ratio of 21.1 to 1.

Ice TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries, fast food restaurants everywhere are under the control of a gigantic government corporation, the ban on cars has been repealed, and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Ice States's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Order of Klyprer.

The Ice States is ranked 64,312th in the world and 40th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Governments, scoring 19.13 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
