The Empire of Ice and Tinian is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Icelus with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.154 billion Ice and Tinians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 24.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ice and Tinianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,634 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,590 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ice and Tinian's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ecclesiarchy.

Ice and Tinian is ranked 113,072nd in the world and 4,989th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 43.67 on the Rand Index.
