The Free Land of Ionertha is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic population of 124 million Ionerthans 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Industry are ignored. The average income tax rate is 15.5%.

The Ionerthan economy, worth 6.36 trillion Gecko Skins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 51,252 Gecko Skins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Ionertha's national animal is the Tazmanian Geckosaur, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Ionertha is ranked 119,478th in the world and 2,859th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 6.36 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
