Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Moonlit Empire of Issars is a massive, safe nation, ruled by God Urzik with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.539 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, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth a remarkable 1,146 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 252,674 Denars, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, those found guilty of illicit affairs are jailed, and corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks. 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 Alstroemeria and 1,694th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
