Ioke 43

Population3.455 billion


The Republic of Ioke 43 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its parental licensing program, ritual sacrifices, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.455 billion Ioke 43ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ioke 43ian economy, worth 194 trillion salts a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,209 salts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, and endangered species are effective hostages against the Ioke 43ian military. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioke 43's national animal is the llama, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ioke 43 is ranked 142,616th in the world and 4th in United Regions of the Gwilymverse for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 513.91 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
