The Free Land of IslandNublar is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 18 million IslandNublarians 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The weak IslandNublarian economy, worth 513 billion Dolars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 28,523 Dolars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, military spending recently hit a new high, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IslandNublar's national animal is the Dinosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

IslandNublar is ranked 194,236th in the world and 319th in Karma for Highest Drug Use, scoring 31 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
