Location: Jafazia

Regional Influence: Vassal


The State of La Iconia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Yūki Yoda with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-working, democratic population of 929 million iconics enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liranim. The average income tax rate is 19.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong iconic economy, worth 56.4 trillion Neroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,686 Neroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Begun the Clone Wars have, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and Yūki Yoda has just been declared ruler of La Iconia in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. La Iconia's national animal is the Tangurian deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

La Iconia is ranked 228,494th in the world and 503rd in Jafazia for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -10 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
