The Kingdom of Glacian Empire is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 335 million Imperial Glacians 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 Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Szaratoba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.0%.

The powerhouse Glacian Empirean economy, worth 33.2 trillion Dombs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,098 Dombs, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, refugees from other nations are flocking to Glacian Empire's border, religious bigotry is not allowed but bigotry against theism is encouraged, 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 capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glacian Empire's national animal is the Glacian Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Glacian Empire is ranked 94,548th in the world and 3,718th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 55.9 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
