Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Moonlit Empire of Issars is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by God Urzik with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.067 billion Knights are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of INFRAGILIS. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth a remarkable 2,660 trillion Denars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 376,524 Denars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,150,204 per year while the poor average 95,535, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Issars's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Knighthood of the God Urzik.

Issars is ranked 154,742nd in the world and 12th in Alstroemeria for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.39 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
