The Queen Of the Waltz of Feu de Glace is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Poisson Marion Bouillon with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, soft-spoken computers, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.196 billion Feu de Glaceans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Στοιχειώδης Γη. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Feu de Glacean economy, worth a remarkable 2,304 trillion chips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 205,797 chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Feu de Glaceans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, and a degree in Poisson Marion Bouillon Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime is totally unknown. Feu de Glace's national animal is the Superb Bird of Paradise, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Creed of the Bocci Playing Chihuahuas.

Feu de Glace is ranked 238,140th in the world and 218th in Refugia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -16.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
