The Windows Defender of Islonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Agathe Fortier with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.339 billion Islonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpina. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Islonian economy, worth 453 trillion Iscles a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 104,507 Iscles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill, and it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Alpina. Crime is totally unknown. Islonia's national animal is the Alpaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Godsinia.

Islonia is ranked 194,874th in the world and 320th in Thaecia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.37 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
