The Holy Catholic Empire of Ilstur is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Gerry Adams with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.495 billion Ilsturians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ilsturian economy, worth 288 trillion Potatoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 115,511 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, ritual mummification is making a comeback, the daily weather forecast often predicts light showers of debris, and arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ilstur's national animal is the Clover, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Ilstur is ranked 24,074th in the world and 2nd in Dolla Holla for Highest Average Incomes, with 115,511.46 Standard Monetary Units.
