The Rogue Nation of The Polar Nation is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 423 million Polar Nation people are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the South Pole HQ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.2%.

The Polar Nation economy, worth 26.5 trillion stolen goods a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,712 stolen goods, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians tack on a service charge for assisting with casework, agricultural employees work for peanuts, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, and takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The Polar Nation's national animal is the tropical, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Polar Nation is ranked 49,892nd in the world and 2nd in Republic of Western Canada for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 52.64 Whatever.
