The Great Space Bazaar of Iammelon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Corporate Triad with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.974 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 Union Hold A. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Iammelonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,030 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 339,896 MonoCredits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,753,655 per year while the poor average 35,887, a ratio of 48.9 to 1.

Mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Business Wyverns and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, all footpaths have tollbooths, and Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Iammelon as a reminder of their "special relationship". 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 47,207th in the world and 93rd in The Galactic Federacy for Highest Poor Incomes, with 35,887.34 Standard Monetary Units.
