The Empire of Illista is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.554 billion Illistans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.7%.

The thriving Illistan economy, worth 123 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 79,405 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,293 per year while the poor average 17,382, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and children are raised bilingual from an early age. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Illista's national animal is the Eagle.

Illista is ranked 67,906th in the world and 2,384th in the West Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 69.87 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
