The Technate of Ionicus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Terezis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 23.293 billion Ionicians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khasde. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ionician economy, worth a remarkable 9,126 trillion Ionic Credit ₹s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 391,794 Ionic Credit ₹s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Ionicus. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 72nd in the world and 1st in Astyria for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 137,761.89 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
