The Democratic Republic of Ioways is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.688 billion Iowaysians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Omaha. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Iowaysian economy, worth 795 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 215,649 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 726,187 per year while the poor average 47,445, a ratio of 15.3 to 1.
The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime is totally unknown. Ioways's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.
