Population21.532 billion



The Republic of Ischaemia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.532 billion Ischaemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 3.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ischaemian economy, worth a remarkable 3,293 trillion pesos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,963 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, nose plugs are the latest Ischaemian fashion accessory, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime is totally unknown. Ischaemia's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ischaemia is ranked 165,745th in the world and 8,932nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.04 Obesity Rate.
