The Gull Flag Republic of Iansisle is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nicodemo Ranalte with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, soft-spoken computers, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 42.06 billion Iansisleans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ianapalis. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iansislean economy, worth an astonishing 23,206 trillion generals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 551,752 generals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, people typically base their votes on which party has the cutest logo, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and politicians can be seen taking candy from babies. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Iansisle's national animal is the seagull, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Iansisle is ranked 69th in the world and 1st in A Modern World for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 41,969.26 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
