OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Izalta is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Minister Love with a fair hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.331 billion Izaltans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Love. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The art of conversation has been rediscovered, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. Crime is totally unknown. Izalta's national animal is the impala, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Eros.

Izalta is ranked 1,448th in Lazarus and 50,196th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
