The United Cities of Illichiana is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Pete Buttigieg with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, aversion to nipples, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 912 million Illichianans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gary. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Illichianan economy, worth 107 trillion Illichiana Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 118,080 Illichiana Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It's best not to ask what goes into Gary Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, chickens roam the streets freely, the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, and no one is quite sure what many government officials look like. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Illichiana's national animal is the Canadian Goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Illichiana is ranked 20,520th in the world and 1,125th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.91 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
