The Godless Mercantile Nexus of Isla Vista is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Colonial Premier Mawaar with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 26.183 billion Islanders are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trigo. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Isla Vistan economy, worth an astonishing 21,224 trillion Golden Bonds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 810,603 Golden Bonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,233,259 per year while the poor average 28,229, a ratio of 220 to 1.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime is almost non-existent. Isla Vista's national animal is the Marsupial Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Isla Vista is ranked 169th in Wysteria and 113,338th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -18,081 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
