The Darkness Clan of Iskios is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jennu Umbra with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.706 billion 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iskios City. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Iskiosian economy, worth 70.6 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 41,385 Shadows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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, and its national religion is Umbraism.

Iskios is ranked 139,501st in the world and 7,412th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -1.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
