The Kingdom of Intaglio is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Julilla II de Augustine with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 16.284 billion Intaglis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augustine. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Intagli economy, worth a remarkable 1,514 trillion iroes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,026 iroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, and vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Intaglio's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Intaglio is ranked 170,261st in the world and 25th in The Universal Federation for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 757.85 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
