The Great Union of Insulalia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Marshall J D Gardener with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, enslaved workforce, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.385 billion Insulans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reeveport. The average income tax rate is 31.0%.

The all-consuming Insulan economy, worth 283 trillion Insulan dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,798 Insulan dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, petitions to the government are being used to insulate politicians' office walls, and visions of giant pink Draft horses are a common side effect after Insulans eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Insulalia's national animal is the Draft horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of the Dichotomy in Christ.

Insulalia is ranked 25,540th in the world and 34th in The Western Isles for Most Devout, with 1,318.4 Prayers Per Hour.
