The Imperial Republic of Glacian Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Kydo with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.903 billion Glacian Empyreans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 55.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glacian Empirean economy, worth 317 trillion Imperial Dombs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 166,776 Imperial Dombs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

People invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Glacian Empire's national animal is the Great Imperial Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Emperor is god.

Glacian Empire is ranked 162,140th in the world and 6,987th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 38.56 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
