The Darkness Clan of Iskios is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jennu Umbra with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.167 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, socially-minded 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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Iskiosian economy, worth 158 trillion Shadows a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,173 Shadows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. 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, and its national religion is Umbraism.
