The United Ekumen of Isilanka is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Francesca Miramar with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.704 billion Isilankans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostramar. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Isilankan economy, worth 495 trillion sicles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,197 sicles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isilanka's national animal is the moth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Isilankan Paganism.

Isilanka is ranked 2,505th in the world and 54th in the Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 11,128.61 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
