The Regional Trust of Illahee is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hyas Tyee with an even hand, and notable for its feral children, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.397 billion Sasquatches have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wahkiakum. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Squatchy economy, worth 614 trillion Dentaliums a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 113,881 Dentaliums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A long-distance hike gets students geared up for a long day at school, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the government pours millions of Dentaliums into rehabilitation programs annually, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Illahee's national animal is the Tree Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Squatch Rite.

Illahee is ranked 202,782nd in the world and 12th in The Sasquatch Republic for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -18.17 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
