The Proletarian Territories of Iae is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.913 billion Iæns are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iaem. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Æsh economy, worth 27.8 trillion Æns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 14,509 Æns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Iae's radio stations, atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, and prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iae's national animal is the Æl.

Iae is ranked 170,041st in the world and 336th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 4.29 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
