The Holy Frozen Purple Empire of Glacikaldr is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Crown Prince Remus Raewyn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, digital currency, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.893 billion Glacikaldrians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dal'Kaldera. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Glacikaldrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,452 trillion crimins 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 amazing 210,700 crimins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, royal babies are so on-point right now, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glacikaldr's national animal is the spooky scary skeleton, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dramoon Zyonnism.

Glacikaldr is ranked 178,978th in the world and 4,414th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring -75.11 on the Rand Index.
