The Democratic States of Ilecht is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mel Anewth with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 996 million Ilechtians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ilechtian economy, worth 100 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 101,310 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 594,530 per year while the poor average 8,064, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

A Realm of the Whispering Winds Tourist Association survey has rated Ilecht #1 for number twos, luxury condos have arisen from the ashes of demolished houses of worship, Mel Anewth can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, and Ilechtians seem to be catching more chills. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ilecht's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ilecht is ranked 29,547th in the world and 20th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 166.49 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
