The Fortunan Territory of The Ice Wastes is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Direktor Masgard with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and national health service. The hard-working, devout population of 1.664 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 11.3%.

The very strong Northerner economy, worth 115 trillion Fortunes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 69,571 Fortunes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

People caught mistreating The Ice Wastes's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. 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.

The Ice Wastes is ranked 38,358th in the world and 1st in Fortuna for Most Pacifist, with 107.92 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
