The Great Space Bazaar of Iammelon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Corporate Triad with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4 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 21.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Iammelonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 288,611 MonoCredits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,430,227 per year while the poor average 33,025, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, lavish state dinners in Moneytopia are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and business leaders are mailing The Corporate Triad forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs. 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 1,309th in the world and 2nd in The Galactic Federacy for Highest Average Incomes, with 288,611.03 Standard Monetary Units.
