The Queen Of the Waltz of Feu de Glace is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Poisson Marion Bouillon with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.495 billion Feu de Glaceans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Στοιχειώδης Γη. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Feu de Glacean economy, worth a remarkable 2,125 trillion chips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 223,802 chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, Poisson Marion Bouillon's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors. Crime is totally unknown. Feu de Glace's national animal is the Superb Bird of Paradise, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Creed of the Bocci Playing Chihuahuas.

Feu de Glace is ranked 205,327th in the world and 8,118th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -34.64 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
