Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Ilisseia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Vladimirovotch with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 989 million Ilisseians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illondcamwigburg. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ilisseian economy, worth 43.3 trillion Ili Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 43,751 Ili Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and Ilisseians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ilisseia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ilisseia is ranked 163,858th in the world and 8,777th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -16.25 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
