The Empire of Ice and Tinian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Icelus with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.791 billion Ice and Tinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 43.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ice and Tinianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,838 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,419 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls, and a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ice and Tinian's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ecclesiarchy.

Ice and Tinian is ranked 7,753rd in the world and 430th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,838.73 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
