The Illusion of Isokenzar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Isocato with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.289 billion Isokenzarians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sector 47. The average income tax rate is 43.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isokenzarian economy, worth 492 trillion z-bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 149,735 z-bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, organ donation is compulsory, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime is totally unknown. Isokenzar's national animal is the stinking dwarf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Ongoing Existential Crisis.

Isokenzar is ranked 56,738th in the world and 2,466th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
