The People's Republic of Icarro is a large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 82 million Icarroans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Icarroan economy, worth 1.80 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 21,968 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Icarro's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Icarro is ranked 153,431st in the world and 6,285th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 24,073.72 Standard Monetary Units.
