Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of Iskios is a huge, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 419 million Iskiosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Iskiosian economy, worth 11.0 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 26,240 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", sex changes are routinely performed at Iskios's hospitals, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iskios's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iskios is ranked 26,249th in the world and 1,442nd in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 128.5 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
