The Rogue Nation of The Polar Nation is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 429 million Polar Nation people are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the South Pole HQ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.0%.

The Polar Nation economy, worth 27.6 trillion stolen goods a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,432 stolen goods, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, Polar Nation husbands are dead good at fathering kids, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, and bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The Polar Nation's national animal is the tropical, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Polar Nation is ranked 209,557th in the world and 2nd in Republic of Western Canada for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.37 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
