The Storm Trooper Squad of Ikkan is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 23.351 billion Ikkanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 43.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Ikkanian economy, worth 547 trillion Ikkuroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,459 Ikkuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ikkan's national animal is the Italian Gray Hound.

Ikkan is ranked 169,118th in the world and 108th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 513.57 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
