The Most Serene Republic of Ishtimbine is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Executive Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, avowedly heterosexual populace, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 9.215 billion Ishtimbenians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishtimbine City. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The strong Ishtimbinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,031 trillion Exchange Standards a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 111,935 Exchange Standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, the clergy of the Abrahamic Faiths remains a single-sex institution, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ishtimbine's national animal is the Sitting Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Abrahamic Faiths.

Ishtimbine is ranked 309,888th in the world and 9,458th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.66 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
