The Holy Red Concord of Ikonja is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by its federal government with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.844 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.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Cruce de Canales. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ikonjan economy, worth a remarkable 4,089 trillion meritoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 275,507 meritoes, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, and Ikonja's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ikonja's national animal is the Haribon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ikonja is ranked 3,599th in Lazarus and 114,174th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -40 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
