Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Moonlit Empire of Issars is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by God Urzik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, ritual sacrifices, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.808 billion Knights are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth 856 trillion Denars a year, is fairly 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 224,935 Denars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, all news sources are under strict government control, and families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up. 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 5th in I HATE GRAPE JAM and 136,796th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -6.399 Net Tourists per hour.
