The Most Serene Republic of Iodinia is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alexandra Ericsen with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 803 million Iodinians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elaburg. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Iodinian economy, worth 79.3 trillion ionics a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,741 ionics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, they say that Iodinians made a dessert and called it peace, and police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints. 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 110,635th in the world and 4,822nd in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 10.25 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
