The Republic of Ioke 22 is a massive, genial nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, enslaved workforce, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, devout population of 3.365 billion Ioke 22ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 37.1%.

The strong Ioke 22ian economy, worth 140 trillion salts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,814 salts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioke 22's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ioke 22 is ranked 49,697th in the world and 1st in Land Of The Toes for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,397.01 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
