The Blue and Yellow Commonwealth of Insulamia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Canning with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.103 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 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Insulamian economy, worth 231 trillion pounds 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 110,187 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Insulamia's national animal is the Côté bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Insulamia is ranked 5,606th in the world and 1st in The Northern Commonwealth for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,422.59 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
