Ioke 62

The Republic of Ioke 62 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 602 million Ioke 62ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ioke 62ian economy, worth 36.2 trillion salts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,208 salts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, it's never "just a game" with Ioke 62ian sports fans, and endangered species are effective hostages against the Ioke 62ian military. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioke 62's national animal is the llama, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ioke 62 is ranked 162,423rd in the world and 2nd in The CCGFR for Highest Economic Output, with 36.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
