OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate population of 21.598 billion Ishmielians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishmiel City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, the government seizes all major gold finds, students cut up leftover waines during Arts and Crafts, and homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Ishmiel's national animal is the whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the waine.

Ishmiel is ranked 179th in Canada and 112,580th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -30 on the Hayek Index.
