Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Uciniple Colony of Icotopia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Erickson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.339 billion Icotopians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burien. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Icotopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,751 trillion Donueds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 238,661 Donueds, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, companies balk at paying their workers, a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation, and the endangered saltwater humpback Mountain Lion is only seen in captivity programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Icotopia's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Icotopia is ranked 137,928th in the world and 11th in Des Sons Vivants for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.66 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
