Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Godless Mercantile Nexus of Isla Vista is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Colonial Premier Mawaar with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 28.962 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 23,750 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 820,065 Golden Bonds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,927,759 per year while the poor average 61,652, a ratio of 79.9 to 1.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Isla Vista's radio stations, the government is a law unto itself, and the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Marsupial Tiger hunting institutions. 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 191,997th in the world and 131st in Wysteria for Best Weather, with -6851 Meters Of Sunlight.
