The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 21.95 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.

Euthanasia is legal, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. 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 152nd in Canada and 112,475th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
