The Shiny Hoarders of Isabella Hime is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Little Isabellas with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, disturbing lack of elderly people, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.951 billion little Isabellas are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bella Bella Land. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Isabella Himean economy, worth a remarkable 4,807 trillion Shiny Things 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. 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 283,622 Shiny Things, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, foreign militaries are taking a particular interest in the nation's abandoned borders and cities, brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isabella Hime's national animal is the Kabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Supreme Shinyness.

Isabella Hime is ranked 175,804th in the world and 5,698th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 34.87 Insults Per Minute.
