The United Cities of Illichiana is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Pete Buttigieg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.472 billion Illichianans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gary. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Illichianan economy, worth 215 trillion Illichiana Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,268 Illichiana Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, twins are held culpable for the actions of their siblings, the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Illichiana's mid-life crisis, and chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Illichiana's national animal is the Canadian Goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
