The Most Serene Republic of Iodinia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alexandra Ericsen with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.387 billion Iodinians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elaburg. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iodinian economy, worth 332 trillion ionics a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,178 ionics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iodinia's national animal is the grey seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Iodinia is ranked 5,387th in the world and 154th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.26 on the Human Development Index.
