The Autonomous Län of Iskattland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Felix IV with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.338 billion Iskattlanders 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, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iskattstad. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Iskattlandic economy, worth 160 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,458 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, Iskattland's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, Iskattstad's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, and giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Felix IV is a silly poophead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iskattland's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Iskattfolkets Andlighetsförening.

Iskattland is ranked 2,598th in the world and 212th in Europe for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 89 valid endorsements.
