The Island Collective of Indulgence and Ecstasy is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.635 billion Unified Islanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, surveillance cameras are banned, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Indulgence and Ecstasy's national animal is the Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the Euro.

Indulgence and Ecstasy is ranked 305th in Europe and 107,828th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -34 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
