The Free Land of Iltine is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 141 million Iltineans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The very strong Iltinean economy, worth 8.36 trillion coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 59,267 coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 377,885 per year while the poor average 3,825, a ratio of 98.8 to 1.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle, towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Iltine's national animal is the fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Iltine is ranked 160,203rd in the world and 1st in United Island States for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 81.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
