The Republic of Plergothia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Doctor Frost with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 10.504 billion Plergothians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glacia. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Plergothian economy, worth 153 trillion Ice coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 14,581 Ice coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The internet has been placed under government control, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, Doctor Frost has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, and long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plergothia's national animal is the Gigas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plergothia is ranked 45,032nd in the world and 2nd in Greatest Ixnay for Lowest Crime Rates, with 70.41 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
