The People's Republic of Inosta is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kim J One with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.627 billion Inostans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyongnang. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.0%.

The powerhouse Inostan economy, worth 164 trillion Wins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 101,188 Wins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 327,028 per year while the poor average 23,660, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Inostan soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Inosta's national animal is the Asiatic Bleu Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Inosta is ranked 29,312th in the world and 48th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,955.32 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
