The Terrible Swift Sword of Ii1 is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 11.984 billion iis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 65.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Ii1ian economy, worth 668 trillion $$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 55,791 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, unsolved crimes are often pinned on veterans with PTSD, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Ii1ian language, and terrorists who are 17th cousins with the ex-wives of half-brothers of citizens are now exempt from the immigration ban. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ii1's national animal is the laughing swordfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
