The Republic of Islanasu is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 373 million Islanasuans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 25.6%.

The strong Islanasuan economy, worth 26.9 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,215 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

All the world's a stage for Islanasuan political theatrics, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and overhead luggage compartments on planes sometimes conceal dimunitive intelligence officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Islanasu's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Islanasu is ranked 55,656th in the world and 2,356th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,536.4 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
