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 museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.006 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of INFRAGILIS. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth 925 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 230,955 Denars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Issars Blood Tithe. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Knighthood of the God Urzik.

Issars is ranked 4th in I HATE GRAPE JAM and 133,174th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -4.959 Net Tourists per hour.
