The Citizens' Concord of Ikonja is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by its federal government with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.025 billion Ikonjans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Cruce de Canales. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Soda Sales.

The government has enacted freedom of information, the government has become increasingly militant, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and there is now a private sector based on doomsday devices (Ikonja has found 3 easter eggs). Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ikonja's national animal is the Haribon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the merito.

Ikonja is ranked 3rd in The Second Coming of Vex and 22,693rd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 11 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
