The Transdimensional Hub of Ithania is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.622 billion Ithanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ithanian economy, worth 687 trillion Allocation Units a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,884 Allocation Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A third of Ithanians are e-certified CEOs, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ithania's national animal is the Phoenix, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Ithania is ranked 95,795th in the world and 4,225th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 831.15 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
