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 remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, strictly enforced bedtime, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.504 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth a remarkable 2,920 trillion Denars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 389,177 Denars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,490,607 per year while the poor average 70,133, a ratio of 21.3 to 1.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, and Issars's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. 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 1,320th in the world and 3rd in Alstroemeria for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 98.92 Effective Tax Rate.
