The United Islands of Iontan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Executive Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.638 billion Iontanians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iontan City. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Iontian economy, worth a remarkable 5,496 trillion Tayoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 223,073 Tayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
