The Grand Republic of Ikania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Dramis with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 17.012 billion Ikanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekrina. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ikanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,469 trillion diruas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 145,191 diruas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, citizens are abandoning their homes en masse in a widespread panic over asbestos, and Consul Dramis likes it when another nation spies on their citizens. 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 eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ikanian Orthodoxy.

Ikania is ranked 31,299th in the world and 36th in The League for Most Patriotic, with 27.19 flags saluted per person per day.
