The United Islands of Iontan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Executive Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.143 billion Iontanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iontan City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Iontian economy, worth a remarkable 5,063 trillion Tayoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 218,813 Tayoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Iontian satellites can detect it, The Executive Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iontan's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iontan is ranked 239,012th in the world and 1,606th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -51.82 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
