Location: The North Pacific



Population21.9 billion



The Republic of Ischaemia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.9 billion Ischaemians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Social Policy is also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ischaemian economy, worth a remarkable 3,350 trillion pesos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,986 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, nose plugs are the latest Ischaemian fashion accessory, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime is totally unknown. Ischaemia's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ischaemia is ranked 743rd in the world and 521st in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 179 Valid Endorsements.
