The People's Democracy of Icecapriania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Sianne Michaelis with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.56 billion Icecaprianians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siani City. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Icecaprianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,696 trillion Cariuses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,077 Cariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and the comic book series 'President Sianne Michaelis and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icecapriania's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is has yet to be appointed.

Icecapriania is ranked 201,765th in the world and 54th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
