Formal full nation name: The Community of the Frozen Chosen

Formal short nation name: The Community

Other nation references: The Frozen Chosen

Formal nationality: Frozen Chosen

Informal nationality: the Chosen


Though a nation of over 1.4 billion citizens, this nation still maintains the distinctive character of a small intimate community. In fact, some 68% of the Chosen still live in small jungle villages, each boasting an approximate average population of 934 and a unique local government. These localities have historically controlled most of the soverign decisionmaking, but now policies have been becoming more centralized. This shift has been accompanied by the rapid growth of The Community's de facto capital, Waltora. The only urban center in the nation, it is fast becoming an icon of progress and modern technology. There is still some resistance to centralization; in fact some villages refuse to acknowledge the existence of Waltora as anything more than a government headquarters. Still, the younger generations have been quicker to accept the new role of Waltora as a central national hub. Waltora currently meets the needs of a nation attempting to efficiently organize national government and coordinate international diplomacy and trade.

Facts and Figures


  • Gender: 46% female, 42.5% male, 8% androgenous, 3.5% Broxa*

Mostly the result of cloning and cross-species breeding experiments in the village of Silverthorn. All deemed sentient by a government-approved battary of intelligence tests are considered citizens under the law, with all the rights of homo sapiens living in The Community.

  • Racial/Ethnic: statistics unavailable due to policy prohibiting requesting said information
  • Religion: 86% monotheistic, 6.1% atheistic, 2.9% polytheistic, 5% chose not to respond

More specific information unavailabe due to the lack of hierarhcal religion. Faith is considered a personal issue. Like-minded indivduals do occasionally gather to worship/discuss/etc but views are generally so disperse that no official established religions or denominations are known to exist. Foreign visitors have stated, however that The Community seems to be dominated by varous forms of Christianity.

  • Technology: 83% own a TV, 100% own a computer, 97.4% have internet access, 91.2% have a cell phone
  • Other: An estimated 97.4% of native Chosen possess telepathic powers. This has allowed for the perpetuation of a nation without any need for domestic centralization. It is believed that at least 85% of citizens in The Community, though only 37% of Waltora, are native, telepathic Chosen.

Business & Technology

The Community's economy is led by the Trout Fishing, Information Technology and Publishing Industries.

Books are almost exclusively sold through the export market, since the telepathic majority, aidied by the contruction of an central databank codenamed "Project Atlantis" in Waltora, have little need for printed materials. This database is currently able to communicate telepathically with citizens, as well as corporate systems, and keep record of all publically important thought, though only with the express permission of the original source brain. While "Atlantis", which is commonly misconstrued as an artificial intelligence, can interact with all individuals, participation in this information sharing is purely voluntary. "Atlantis" also doubles as an electronic library, making libraries of printed materials obsolete. In recent years efforts have begun to expand the collection of knowledge embodied in "Atlantis" to include sources outside of the community. There are currently a number of research teams being funded by governmental science and education grants to travel abroad and collect forther information for the database. In most cases, due to the impossibility of extended telepathic communication caused by the large geographical distances involved, this involves creating physical copies of the information recorded and then returing these copies to the Project Atlantis headquarters in Waltora. Negoiations to involve the assests of privately controlled space and aerospace corporations to help transmit information via satellites, which should prove to be more practical, timely, and efficient than the current procedure.

The Trout market is the economic power base of the smaller villages, utilizing the thriving trout populations present in The Frozen Chosen's many streams. In some cases, trout has begun to eclipse the silver piece as the prime type of currency. Enviromental protections on the rivers in Waltora have forced the import of trout from the rural villages, making it an expensive and highly prized commodity.

The Frozen Chosen have also been pioneers of energy research. Scientist are currently working to refine the dung of various native fauna, which has been the prime source of energy for many villages for centuries, to generate energy in a form more compatible with international standards calling for the use of hydrogen fuel while maintianing the environmental benefits of recycling dung.


Though The Community of the Frozen Chosen did not become an incorporated nation until 2005, the roots were laid with the founding of Waltora in 1956. What began as just another of the many villages located in the modern Community soon grew to a relatively large size. The process began in earnest, however, with Alfred Petrovich's decision to establish the Waltora Freedom University (WFU). Believed to be the first widespread evidence of telepathic ability among the Chosen, people poured in from around the country, representing almost every village. Chosen scientist now believe that telepathic ability had already developed as a method of warning other villages and / tribal members of impending danger.

The village of Waltora was forced to expand to accomadate the massive influx of students. The city grew exponentially, absorbing surrounding villages, though it still only maintianed the population exquivalent to an average suburban town.

In 1987 Alex Madsen entered WFU and quickly made a splash. A social studies student, he quickly became interested in politics. His essays on democracy were groundbreaking for the nation and paved the way for national discussion of political reform.

Meanwhile, the fast-paced growth of Waltora drew the attention of international trade forces. Soon Waltora became a bustling trade center, eith thousands of silver pieces in consumer goods exchanged daily.

By 1991 Madsen had begun campaigning for the incorportation of a nation. His studies had led him to be a stanch supporter of democracy and civil freedom, but he also believed a centralized government was essestial to uniting the villages and helping citizens in need. His efforrts were faced with resistance from may villages, suspicious of attempts to remove local governance. In the follwing years, against the backdrop of the still industrializing Waltora, conferences were held telepathically to determine the fate of the region. In a final vote in 1997, 74% of the Chosen approved a plan to create a national government that would operate with high levels of democratic input and respect for local soverignty. The nation was dubbed the Community of the Frozen Chosen, both referencing a popular tribal myth (frozen chosen) and emphasizing the importance of solidarity and equality as a nation (community). Not all villages joined the nation at this time, however, leaving the Community in a state of flux, trying to operate as a country though some villages still objected to the centralization. Madsen was easily elected head of the Executive Council created to spearhead the formation and operation of the national government. Other top students at WFU, including some foreign nationals, were elected and appointed to other top positions.

In 2001 the secluded village of Silverthorn, the last of the remaining holdouts from the 1997 agreement, announced its decision to join the Community. The resulting discovery of the Broxa population quickly became controversial. The results of cross-species breeding experiments, these part human individuals spawned arguments over their citizenship status. While government officials and many other voiced the need for equality, certain villages, including the especially vocal Bush W, decried the Broxas as inferior. The issue of sentience bcame a deciding factor and in a September vote it was agreed that all Broxas able to pass a series of basic intelligence tests, originally developed to determine a child readieness to enter elementary school, were to be given the full rights of citizenship. Violence ensued as villagers from Bush W burned Broxa enclaves near Silverthorn, but the Citizens Police Force quelled the violence. Anti-Broxa sentiment remains to this day, with certain extremeist politicians using the reduction of current Broxa rights as a campaign platform in some villages.

In 2003 Madsen stepped down at the completion of his 6 year term, which had be set as the term of office for the position. In the election to replace him, attorney Sophie Macmillan recieved the support of civil rights activists and won 42% of the initial popular vote in a field of 8 candidates. Her nearest competiator, head of the Citizen's Police Force (CPF) {made necessary by the lack of an official government sponsored military or law enforcement department} Michael Freberg, receiving only 14.4%. Macmillan won the runoff by a 23 point spread, though 18.9% voted "None of the above", becoming the first female leader of the Community of the Frozen Chosen.

In 2005, with the official incorportation of the final villages in the northeast portion of the nation, the Community's status as a nation became officially recognized and the Community was quickly admitted to the United Nations. Foreign Affairs Director Mark Heln was elected as the first UN delegate of the Community.

A committee has been formed to study the possibility of withdrawing The Frozen Chosen from the UN, as per a recent vote of the outlying conclaves which showed a 32% sentiment in favor of immediate withdrawal (and a 61% vote for "None of the Above"). Civic leaders insist, however, that the Community must maintain its international voice, even if only through the formation of a semi-autoomous UN mission that could potentially be constructed on the outskirts of Waltora.
