The Mostly Insignificant Nation of Ioavollr is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 34.486 billion Citizens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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 594 trillion ISSP Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 17,241 ISSP Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, the new Kodiak Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Ioavollr after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. 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 89,964th in the world and 29th in Scandinavia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,334.62 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
