The Benevolent Dictatorship of Icelandic Imperium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Haf■ˇr J˙lÝus Bj÷rnsson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.783 billion Icelandic Imperialists are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ReykjavÝk. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Icelandic Imperialist economy, worth 299 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,894 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The news is showing footage of Haf■ˇr J˙lÝus Bj÷rnsson bullying an old man to the point of tears, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and schoolchildren must pass a six-month Ethics and Safety Committee Assessment before they are allowed to mix baking soda and vinegar. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icelandic Imperium's national animal is the Puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Icelandic Imperium is ranked 45,564th in the world and 897th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 308.2652888212 Days.
