The Queen Of the Waltz of Feu de Glace is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Poisson Marion Bouillon with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.325 billion Feu de Glaceans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Στοιχειώδης Γη. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Feu de Glacean economy, worth a remarkable 2,833 trillion chips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 212,679 chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime is totally unknown. Feu de Glace's national animal is the Superb Bird of Paradise, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Creed of the Bocci Playing Chihuahuas.

Feu de Glace is ranked 1,922nd in the world and 5th in Refugia for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 14,045.57 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
