The Darkness Clan of Iskios is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jennu Umbra with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.232 billion Iskiosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government 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 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Iskiosian economy, worth 94.6 trillion Shadows a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,379 Shadows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and playing an online nation simulation game legally obliges you to buy the creator's latest novel. 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 68,876th in the world and 3,375th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 915.87 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
