The Spirit's Reign of Frostiar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Freya with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 12.947 billion Frostiarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ionia. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frostiarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,327 trillion Quobits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,566 Quobits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Frostiarian language, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frostiar's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spiritualism.

Frostiar is ranked 159,873rd in the world and 2nd in The Frozen Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 18.22 on the Rand Index.
