The Great Space Bazaar of Iammelon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Corporate Triad with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.734 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 42.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Iammelonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,522 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 321,659 MonoCredits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,367,734 per year while the poor average 48,720, a ratio of 28.1 to 1.

Nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money. 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 5,285th in the world and 9th in The Galactic Federacy for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
