The Mostly Insignificant Nation of Ioavollr is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.039 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 531 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 16,589 ISSP Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government takes agricultural advice from a wasp-themed superhero, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. 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 1,953rd in the world and 5th in Scandinavia for Largest Populations, with 32.0 billion Capita.
