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 barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.47 billion Icthalians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government prioritizes 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 4.3%.

The very strong Icthali economy, worth 158 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 108,036 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Eminent domain has been abolished, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. 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 37,374th in the world and 60th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,346.76 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
