The Fortunan Territory of The Ice Wastes is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Direktor Masgard with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 1.18 billion High Northerners 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkangel. The average income tax rate is 10.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Northerner economy, worth 80.3 trillion Fortunes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 68,013 Fortunes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of The Ice Wastes's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse, and conspiracy theorists allege Arkangel's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime is relatively low. The Ice Wastes's national animal is the Narwhal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
