The Republic of Illeron is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.635 billion Illeronians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Illeronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,390 trillion Illiras 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 119,480 Illiras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime is totally unknown. Illeron's national animal is the Tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Illeron is ranked 129,257th in the world and 233rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Armed, with 0.31 Weapons Per Person.
