The Republic of Islaevia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 853 million Islaevians 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, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stefiord. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Islaevian economy, worth 71.6 trillion isals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,904 isals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Islaevia Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, Islaevia's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy. 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 107,719th in the world and 2nd in Tranquility for Most Stationary, with 26.2437679262 Days.
