The Darkness Clan of Iskios is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jennu Umbra with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.583 billion Iskiosians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
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 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Iskiosian economy, worth 125 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 48,400 Shadows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, billions are being spent on a new island airport, the diplomatic corps stinks, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Iskios Blood Tithe. 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.
