The Empire of the Rising Cold of Icewindia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Regent Roma and Wilhelm with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.658 billion Icewindians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Icewindian economy, worth 218 trillion Ice Stones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,703 Ice Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Regent Roma and Wilhelm has just been declared ruler of Icewindia in an international press conference, Esperism has been named as Icewindia's national religion, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, and no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icewindia's national animal is the Penguins, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Esperism.

Icewindia is ranked 31,922nd in the world and 34th in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 867.11 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
