The Colony of Islicio is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 885 million Islicioans 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 Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Fra Cendere. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Islicioan economy, worth 35.5 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 40,083 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, racial supremacists indulge their wildest fantasies in cinemas and theatres across the nation, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Islicio's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Islicio is ranked 151,018th in the world and 14th in States of Naphtali for Rudest Citizens, with 41.61 Insults Per Minute.
