The Commonwealth of Greater Icelandia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 476 million Scandinavians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oslo. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Greater Icelandian economy, worth 44.5 trillion Krónas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,541 Krónas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The children of Greater Icelandia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Icelandia's national animal is the Bottlenose Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
