The Floating Islands of The Illusian Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lady Mary Annette with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.6 billion Illusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Temple of Illusia. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Illusian Empirean economy, worth 341 trillion Ills a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,827 Ills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, there's never enough space in space, and the entire retail industry has been replaced by online delivery services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Illusian Empire's national animal is the Illusian Sea Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Temple of Peaceful Chaos.

The Illusian Empire is ranked 56,004th in the world and 2,246th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,462.56 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
