The Citizens' Concord of Ikonja is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by its federal government with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.338 billion Ikonjans 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.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Soda Sales and Automobile Manufacturing.

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 8th in The Second Coming of Vex and 112,724th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with -71 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
