The Gull Flag Republic of Iansisle is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Nicodemo Ranalte with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 34.838 billion Iansisleans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ianapalis. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iansislean economy, worth an astonishing 15,256 trillion generals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 437,924 generals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, Nicodemo Ranalte dines while Ianapalis burns, Seagull is one of the most popular forenames in Iansisle, and ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Iansisle's national animal is the seagull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Iansisle is ranked 46,794th in the world and 11th in A Modern World for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,838.92 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
