The Empire of Ice and Tinian is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Icelus with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.22 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 15.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ice and Tinianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,226 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 169,942 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Ice and Tinianian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Icelus, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Ice and Tinianian selfishness, and a popular phrase is "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we eat, drink and be merry some more". 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 10,549th in the world and 587th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 85.18 Years.
