The Federal Republic of Iconic Republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Al Bacardi with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.787 billion Iconics 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iconic City. The average income tax rate is 67.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Iconic economy, worth 234 trillion Iconis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,257 Iconis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Iconis each year, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Iconic Republic will pay them to stop, and chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iconic Republic's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iconic Republic is ranked 118,496th in the world and 5,252nd in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 406.31 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
