Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Moonlit Empire of Issars is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by God Urzik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.71 billion Knights are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of INFRAGILIS. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth a remarkable 1,132 trillion Denars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 240,532 Denars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Issars's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Knighthood of the God Urzik.

Issars is ranked 39th in Alstroemeria and 113,969th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 10 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
