The Federal Empire of Iscoria is a massive, safe nation, ruled by First Chancellor Zara Korel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.851 billion Iscorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isitilia. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iscorian economy, worth 421 trillion Lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,835 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, diplomatic cables about First Chancellor Zara Korel have suddenly been very flattering, and the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iscoria's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Whatever but obey.

Iscoria is ranked 149,181st in the world and 91st in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
