The Social Democratic Paradise of Greater Icelandia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 587 million Scandinavians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
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 Oslo. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Greater Icelandian economy, worth 59.7 trillion Krónas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,728 Krónas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Icelandia's national animal is the Bottlenose Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
