The Resolution-Printing Museum of Magecastle Embassy Building A5 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, feral children, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.778 billion Icers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Magecastle Embassy Complex. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ice economy, worth 373 trillion guineas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 98,776 guineas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 675,682 per year while the poor average 5,209, a ratio of 129 to 1.

Women who are caught shoplifting are sent home to their fathers with a patronising pat on the bottom, many Icers are their brothers' keepers, the ingredients list for most food products covers the entire surface of the packaging, and mouldy bread is served as an appetizer in many restaurants. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Magecastle Embassy Building A5's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Order of Klyprer.

Magecastle Embassy Building A5 is ranked 222,358th in the world and 4,318th in the South Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 86.14 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
