The Republic of Islaevia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 657 million Islaevians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stefiord. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Islaevian economy, worth 49.1 trillion isals a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,773 isals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, replacement organs are grown in vats, parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, and footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Islaevia's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Islaevia is ranked 57,067th in the world and 579th in 10000 Islands for Most Influential, scoring 234 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
