The Mostly Insignificant Nation of Ioavollr is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.677 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 340 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 15,691 ISSP Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, military funding has been stripped back, a government program is underway to revitalize Ioavollr's beaches, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. 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.
