The Republic of Ioke 85 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, disturbing lack of elderly people, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 537 million Ioke 85ians 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 medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.8%.
The strong Ioke 85ian economy, worth 37.4 trillion salts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,618 salts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 375,604 per year while the poor average 6,696, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.
Stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioke 85's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
