The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 21.112 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 wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, the government is outsourcing itself, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. 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 33rd in Canada and 5,289th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 36 on the Enoch Index.
