The Mostly Insignificant Nation of Ioavollr is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.657 billion Citizens enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Ioavollrian economy, worth 499 trillion ISSP Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 16,302 ISSP Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, Ioavollrian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and the government spends millions of ISSP Credits every year prosecuting spammers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioavollr's national animal is the Kodiak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ioavollr is ranked 224,080th in the world and 61st in Scandinavia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -53.1 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
