The Grand Duchy of Iote is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 624 million Ioteans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Macedon. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iotean economy, worth 61.4 trillion Hautecleres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,402 Hautecleres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iote's national animal is the Flying Kangaroo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Iote is ranked 196,945th in the world and 8,643rd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.66 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
