The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.657 billion Icamerans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haplidahipe. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Icameran economy, worth a remarkable 1,544 trillion ladrolas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 113,126 ladrolas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Icamera.
