The Kingdom of ITI I Aristocratic is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lord Aristo I with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.796 billion ITI I Aristocraticians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nobility. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Procrastination is a national sport, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Iguana Lasagne is a hit. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. ITI I Aristocratic's national animal is the iguana, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the pound.

ITI I Aristocratic is ranked 8th in Ideology Testing Inc and 90,595th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
