The Most Serene Republic of Iodinia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alexandra Ericsen with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.973 billion Iodinians 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elaburg. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Iodinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,185 trillion ionics a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,948 ionics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being Prime Minister Alexandra Ericsen has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iodinia's national animal is the grey seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Iodinia is ranked 5,226th in the world and 135th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 144,301.27 Standard Monetary Units.
