The Much love from Polar of Aizcona is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 3.236 billion Estrans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estra. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aizconan economy, worth 449 trillion Txans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,892 Txans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, a policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and reassembling shredded papers is the highlight of a spy's day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aizcona's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aizcona is ranked 34,786th in the world and 66th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,604.86 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
