The Senate and People of Frostinia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Elsa with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.499 billion Frostinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glacialis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Frostinian economy, worth an astonishing 18,723 trillion gelums a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 527,451 gelums, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Families must live in a village for a century before they get any say in how it runs, the military has gone fission for more funding, royal processions are often mistaken for pride parades, and there's more than one way to skin a diplomat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Frostinia's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Religio Frostiniana.

Frostinia is ranked 301,343rd in the world and 1,205th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -45.72 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
