The Deactivated Republic of Frostland is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Irish Republican Army with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.215 billion Frostlanders 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pentapolitania. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Frostlandic economy, worth 736 trillion Frostens a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 141,174 Frostens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A bureaucratic fight over FIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Frostlandic Moonshine", apprentice builders get teased for wearing hard hats, and popular political cartoonists are thrown in jail for inciting dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Frostland's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Frostland is ranked 220,392nd in the world and 34th in Cities of the World for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 43.65 Whatever.
