The TAR Elder Statesman of Icamera is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Mark Abacoba with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.986 billion Icamerans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haplidahipe. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Abortions are routinely performed in Icamera's hospitals, the country is preparing for war, Icamera's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Icamera's national animal is the giraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Blueism, and its currency is the ladrola.
