The Queen Of the Waltz of Feu de Glace is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Poisson Marion Bouillon with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.334 billion Feu de Glaceans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 2,081 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 223,038 chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, one does not simply walk into the tundra, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. 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 207,648th in the world and 8,840th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -15.56 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
