The Great Space Bazaar of Iammelon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Corporate Triad with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.061 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 40.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Iammelonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,687 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 333,407 MonoCredits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,483,701 per year while the poor average 46,629, a ratio of 31.8 to 1.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. 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 2,221st in the world and 6th in The Galactic Federacy for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 16,592.09 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
