The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 21.276 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.

The recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Ishmiel, and cars are banned. 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 150th in Canada and 111,016th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -3,381 Net Tourists per hour.
