The Free Black Territory of Intser is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 820 million Intsrians 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Intserian economy, worth 75.3 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,886 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-euro mansions, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt. Crime is totally unknown. Intser's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Intser is ranked 23,138th in the world and 349th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,542.23 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
