The Moonlit Empire of Issars is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by God Urzik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.105 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of INFRAGILIS. The average income tax rate is 84%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Information Technology.

INFRAGILIS is a police state during international summits, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, the well-off are enjoying tax cuts while famine kills off the poor and destitute, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Issars's national animal is the Red Hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Knighthood of the God Urzik, and its currency is the Kret.

Issars is ranked 149th in Nordic Lands and 105,372nd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -203.5 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
