The Darkness Clan of Iskios is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Jennu Umbra with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 944 million Iskiosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iskios City. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Iskiosian economy, worth 35.9 trillion Shadows a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,066 Shadows, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 161,078th in the world and 8,397th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -15.81 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
