The Mostly Insignificant Nation of Ioavollr is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, compulsory vegetarianism, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.222 billion Ioavollrians 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Ioavollrian economy, worth 263 trillion ISSP Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 14,459 ISSP Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, the government is avowedly atheist, a government program is underway to revitalize Ioavollr's beaches, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioavollr's national animal is the Kodiak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ioavollr is ranked 1st in Scandinavia and 445th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 249 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
