The Exalted Republic of Iacomia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Reginald Worthington-Smythe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 16.757 billion Iacoms are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iacomiopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Iacomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,865 trillion New Republican Goatrarches a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 171,013 New Republican Goatrarches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Iacomia flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime is totally unknown. Iacomia's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is rather pleasant.

Iacomia is ranked 154th in the world and 1st in The Associated States of the Oort Cloud for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 19,670.93 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
