The Incorporated States of Icewolfz is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 36.362 billion Icewolfzians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icewolfz City. The average income tax rate is 55.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Icewolfzian economy, worth a remarkable 8,162 trillion ices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 224,466 ices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Icewolfz's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Icewolfz is ranked 226,025th in the world and 10,184th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -32.79 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
