The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 34.42 billion Ishmielians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishmiel City. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishmielian economy, worth an astonishing 10,514 trillion waines a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 305,463 waines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Ishmiel City Natural History Museum, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, most barbers are also surgeons, and politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Ishmiel's national animal is the whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is a major religion.

Ishmiel is ranked 4,467th in the world and 7th in Canada for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 10,760.97 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
