The Federal Blue Republic of Iglot is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Tony Astor with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.983 billion Iglotians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eksdee City. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iglotian economy, worth 269 trillion hatdogs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,722 hatdogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, war vets look after war animals, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iglot's national animal is the Vampire Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iglot is ranked 4,435th in the world and 81st in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 7,092.12 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
