The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 21.385 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.

Military barracks resemble five-star hotels, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the nation has a strict 'no marauding undead' law (Ishmiel has found 2 easter eggs), and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. 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 4th in Canada and 1,090th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 529 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
