Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Mostly Insignificant Nation of Ioavollr is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.149 billion Humans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Ioavollrian economy, worth 342 trillion ISSP Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 14,779 ISSP Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioavollr's national animal is the Kodiak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ioavollr is ranked 179,191st in the world and 64th in Scandinavia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.14 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
