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 notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.243 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, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 24,966 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 825,538 Golden Bonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,361,994 per year while the poor average 50,654, a ratio of 105 to 1.

The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, agricultural employees work for peanuts, the government has declared that monochrome cinema is the next big thing, and the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy. 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 178,174th in the world and 114th in Wysteria for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -76.55 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
