The Much love from Polar of Polar Svalbard is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Klark Zeltargo with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.724 billion Svalbardians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alta. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svalbardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,698 trillion Polars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 174,702 Polars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and immigrants who don't like the taste of Svalbardian Turnip Chips are immediately deported. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polar Svalbard's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Polar Svalbard is ranked 23,482nd in the world and 52nd in The Western Isles for Most Stationary, with 572.054147774 Days.
