The Archontia of Ikania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Archon Kastonis with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.112 billion Ikanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xarchopolis. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Ikanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,048 trillion drachmas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry. Average income is an impressive 103,646 drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Xarchopolis Natural History Museum, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, children regularly take part in blood sports that result in extreme boo-boos, and the nation's new monarch embarrasses himself during state visits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ikania's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Meuz-Nikarei.
