The Polar Vortex

The Colony of The Polar Vortex is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.88 billion Polar Vortexians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The strong Polar Vortexian economy, worth 134 trillion fleckss of ice a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 46,855 fleckss of ice, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 211,086 per year while the poor average 6,410, a ratio of 32.9 to 1.

The military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, and public toilets are famed for their rear entries. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Polar Vortex's national animal is the unwary statue.

The Polar Vortex is ranked 108,509th in the world and 305th in Frozen Circle for Most Developed, scoring 56.21 on the Human Development Index.
