The Republic of Ioke 99 is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 685 million Ioke 99ians 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 Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.9%.
The strong Ioke 99ian economy, worth 33.1 trillion salts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 48,284 salts, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.
Foreign leaders who don't applaud Leader's speeches are regarded as enemies of Ioke 99, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ioke 99's national animal is the llama, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
