The Glorious Socialist States of Ilyavan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Rovī Milēka with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.793 billion Ilyans 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liyanbūvanyur. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ilyan economy, worth 539 trillion Yavas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 193,264 Yavas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Retail stores have reported mile-long lines after the ban on video games was lifted, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and the government funds large training centres to turn Armoured Bears into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ilyavan's national animal is the Armoured Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Iliyaloqa.

Ilyavan is ranked 185,959th in the world and 683rd in United Kingdom for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 126.59 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
