The Technate of Ionicus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Terezis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 21.271 billion citizens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khasde. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ionic economy, worth a remarkable 8,247 trillion Ionic Credit ₹s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 387,748 Ionic Credit ₹s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the Ionic Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, many friends and relatives of President Terezis have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and the Ionicus Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime is totally unknown. Ionicus's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is none.

Ionicus is ranked 2,576th in the world and 1st in Astyria for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 8,735.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
