The Republic of Iblania is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.651 billion Iblanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potantius. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Iblanian economy, worth 818 trillion Boxes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,569 Boxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iblania's national animal is the Amoeba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iblania is ranked 122,740th in the world and 39th in Kerbin for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 970.4 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
