The United Islands of Iontan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Executive Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.721 billion Iontanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iontan City. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Iontian economy, worth a remarkable 4,788 trillion Tayoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 220,477 Tayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, some Iontian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iontan's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
