The Federation of The Land of Fire and Ice is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 413 million Dragons love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Dragonian economy, worth 11.2 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 27,236 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, every workday begins with group therapy, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Land of Fire and Ice's national animal is the Drake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Land of Fire and Ice is ranked 70,680th in the world and 126th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,642.75 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
