Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Moonlit Empire of Issars is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by God Urzik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, infamous sell-swords, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.192 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 medium-sized, corrupt 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 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth a remarkable 2,263 trillion Denars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 365,538 Denars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', military service is compulsory, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 91,224th in the world and 6th in Alstroemeria for Best Weather, with 102 Meters Of Sunlight.
