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 barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.669 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 24,443 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 823,861 Golden Bonds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,339,867 per year while the poor average 83,342, a ratio of 52.1 to 1.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, graffiti graces every city's streets, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting. 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 154,427th in the world and 110th in Wysteria for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -146.9 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
