The Great Space Bazaar of Iammelon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Corporate Triad with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.455 billion Iammelonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moneytopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Iammelonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,845 trillion MonoCredits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 338,397 MonoCredits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,741,447 per year while the poor average 35,916, a ratio of 48.5 to 1.

Internet flame wars have been known to cause real-world casualties, doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins, The Corporate Triad has more friends than ever before, and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Iammelon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Iammelon's national animal is the Business Wyvern, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Iammelon is ranked 119,688th in the world and 79th in The Galactic Federacy for Most Armed, with 0.23 Weapons Per Person.
