The Protectorate of Ishmiel is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate population of 21.637 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.

Whales are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. 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 171st in Canada and 111,544th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -36 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
