The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 25.307 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.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishmiel City. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ishmielian economy, worth a remarkable 7,501 trillion waines a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 296,427 waines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions, government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and the Ishmielian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Ishmiel's national animal is the whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is a major religion.

Ishmiel is ranked 58th in the world and 3rd in Canada for Most Influential, scoring 256,306 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
