Location: the South Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Izaakia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Shark Master Zak with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.14 billion Izaakians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Izaakston. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Izaakian economy, worth a remarkable 1,502 trillion Shark Teeth a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 210,433 Shark Teeth, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, Izaakians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Shark Master Zak day after day. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Izaakia's national animal is the Mako Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Orgiastic Sea Worship.

Izaakia is ranked 15,581st in the world and 499th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,501.55 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
