The Gull Flag Republic of Iansisle is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Nicodemo Ranalte with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 34.471 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 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 42.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iansislean economy, worth an astonishing 15,022 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 435,806 generals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, procrastination is a national sport, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, and chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports. 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 63,285th in the world and 11th in A Modern World for Most Extreme, scoring 21.42 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
