The Warming Vulcanic Domicile of Icelandium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ingólfr Arnarson with an even hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 12.359 billion Icelandis 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 Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reykjavík. The average income tax rate is 34.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Icelandium economy, worth 523 trillion krónas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,390 krónas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolchildren are taught to boo and hiss at Ingólfr Arnarson's name, former prison executives find themselves guests in their own facilities, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Icelandium's national animal is the the snowman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Icelandium is ranked 195,977th in the world and 1st in New Scandinavia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 59,220 Standard Monetary Units.
