The Most Serene Republic of Coldmount is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 257 million Coldmounts enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 10.4%.

The very strong Coldmountian economy, worth 18.7 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 72,773 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, doctors are trying to diagnose diseases by looking at their patients' Snipchat pictures, religious education is a new government priority, and the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Coldmountian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coldmount's national animal is the peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Coldmount is ranked 110,034th in the world and 73rd in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Devout, with 12.9 Prayers Per Hour.
