Location: The Realm of Liberty

Regional Influence: Dominator


The Democratic Republic of Ilmarene is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Christian Morris with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 1.509 billion Ilmarenes are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quartaria. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ilmarene economy, worth 265 trillion Populuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,859 Populuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", a rusted hulk in Quartaria harbour has been voted the worst eyesore in The Realm of Liberty, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ilmarene's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reason.

Ilmarene is ranked 137,885th in the world and 1st in The Realm of Liberty for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 66.78 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
