The Federal Republic of Isentran is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Marcus Karius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.488 billion Isentranians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Isentranian economy, worth 706 trillion Aerians a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 202,457 Aerians, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 591,459 per year while the poor average 54,727, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Foreign countries consider stepping on their grass to be a serious offense, Isentran successfully hosted the 10000 Islands Olympics, Scout campfire sing-a-longs tend to focus on the evils of antitrust legislation, and vehicular homicide by Isentranian ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Isentran's national animal is the Isentranian Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Isentran is ranked 23,889th in the world and 228th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,807.46 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
