The Mostly Insignificant Nation of Ioavollr is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.751 billion Humans 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, liberal, 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 297 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 15,040 ISSP Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A government program is underway to revitalize Ioavollr's beaches, artists are pillars of society, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. 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.
