Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Itatun is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.846 billion Itatunians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itatun City. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Itatunian economy, worth a remarkable 1,387 trillion tungstens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 140,948 tungstens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government's only official statement on the burning down of Itatun City was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, and potatoes racing stadiums are open 24/7. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itatun's national animal is the potatoes, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Itatun is ranked 9,546th in the world and 8th in Kallisto for Highest Poor Incomes, with 91,095.71 Standard Monetary Units.
