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 museums and concert halls, public floggings, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.075 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 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 23,852 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 820,381 Golden Bonds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,145,332 per year while the poor average 55,327, a ratio of 93.0 to 1.

Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions. 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 181,994th in the world and 130th in Wysteria for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1.93 Tourists Per Hour.
