Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Ilisseia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 628 million Ilisseians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illondcamwigburg. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ilisseian economy, worth 19.4 trillion Ili Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 30,850 Ili Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new monarch embarrasses himself during state visits, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, and fruit pickers with degrees in Lince psychology are a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ilisseia's national animal is the Lince, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ilisseia is ranked 140,139th in the world and 7,007th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.41 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
