The idea was to see how long a small community of people, a central idea of government and their own infinite power source would be able to sustain peace and prosperity.

So we've come to believe, here at ThermoCorp, that our test subjects will ultimately show similar statistics at the end of the trial period.
Also noted is the head of all Icelandic government. Althingi and the President of the Republic. Althingi is comprised of 63 members, all elected for a maximum of four years. When set up in our test group, the data recorded proved to be quite fruitful.
