The Great Union of Insulalia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Marshall J D Gardener with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.603 billion Insulans 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, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reeveport. The average income tax rate is 31.0%.

The all-consuming Insulan economy, worth 302 trillion Insulan dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,833 Insulan dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, petitions to the government are being used to insulate politicians' office walls, and visions of giant pink Draft horses are a common side effect after Insulans eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Insulalia's national animal is the Draft horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of the Dichotomy in Christ.

Insulalia is ranked 229,718th in the world and 191st in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 312.25 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
