The Federation of Ilisseia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Vladimirovotch with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, devout population of 1.918 billion Ilisseians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illondcamwigburg. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ilisseian economy, worth 172 trillion Ili Rubles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,838 Ili Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, ritual mummification is making a comeback, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Ilisseians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 5,695th in the world and 253rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,677.78 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
