OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Mostly Insignificant Nation of Ioavollr is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.822 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The arms industry has been shut down in a surge of pacifism, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Ioavollr after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and a government program is underway to revitalize Ioavollr's beaches. Crime is totally unknown. Ioavollr's national animal is the Kodiak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the ISSP Credit.

Ioavollr is ranked 16th in Scandinavia and 5,265th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 240 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
