Ice Climbers

Population7.028 billion


The Wobbling of Ice Climbers is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 7.028 billion Ice Climbers are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Environment, and Education also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ice Climbersian economy, worth 372 trillion Deneroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,955 Deneroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ice Climbers's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ice Climbers is ranked 87,983rd in the world and 3rd in Amrak for Lowest Crime Rates, with 64.39 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
