The Theocratic States of Icaris is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Dietrich Weber with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 10.992 billion Icarisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paletaph. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Icarisian economy, worth 890 trillion Grenas a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,024 Grenas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, Icaris successfully hosted the The League Olympics, and anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icaris's national animal is the Krystallic Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nantism.

Icaris is ranked 184,619th in the world and 121st in The League for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.81 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
