The Commonwealth of Insulamia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Primeminister Canning with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.2 billion Insulamians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whitecastle. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Insulamian economy, worth 590 trillion livres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,500 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, trade policy consists of ganging up on the new guy, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown. Insulamia's national animal is the reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Insulamia is ranked 180,824th in the world and 3rd in The Northern Commonwealth for Most Secular, with 16.24 Atheism Rate.
