Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of Icthaleon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Marethyu Osgilian with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.177 billion Icthalians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moridin City. The average income tax rate is 3.6%.

The strong Icthali economy, worth 122 trillion Crowns 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 Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 104,406 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Icthaleon's national animal is the Chimera, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Icthaleon is ranked 17,969th in the world and 37th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Nudest, with 213.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
