The Dominion of Ionistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fu Sion with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.459 billion Ionistanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isotope City. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ionistanian economy, worth 804 trillion Atoms a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,601 Atoms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, the military struggles with recruitment, and Ionistanians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. Crime is totally unknown. Ionistan's national animal is the opossum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ionistan is ranked 12,979th in the world and 84th in NationStates for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 8,029.97 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
