Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Godless Mercantile Nexus of Isla Vista is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Colonial Premier Mawaar with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.449 billion Islanders are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 24,252 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 823,538 Golden Bonds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,503,658 per year while the poor average 76,936, a ratio of 58.5 to 1.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, artists are pillars of society, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Isla Vista's national animal is the Marsupial Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Isla Vista is ranked 167,255th in the world and 121st in Wysteria for Lowest Crime Rates, with 1.92 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
