Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Moonlit Empire of Issars is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by God Urzik with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.616 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, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth 800 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 rampant. Average income is an amazing 221,283 Denars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 657,948 per year while the poor average 58,348, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 1st in I HATE GRAPE JAM and 5,140th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
