The Godless Mercantile Nexus of Isla Vista is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Colonial Premier Mawaar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.494 billion Isla Vistans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trigo. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isla Vista's national animal is the Marsupial Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Golden Bond.

Isla Vista is ranked 6th in Wysteria and 32nd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 127 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
