The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 21.141 billion Ishmielians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 17th in Canada and 2,402nd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 90 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
