The Federal Commonwealth of Polarea is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by First Minister Elysia Lynne with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.131 billion Polareans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Göteborg. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Polarean economy, worth a remarkable 2,083 trillion Polar Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 187,224 Polar Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polarea's national animal is the Various, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Polarea is ranked 1,339th in the world and 2nd in Arctic for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 13,275.42 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
