The Federal Republic of Islantica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Tanner Lee Foust with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15.596 billion Islanticans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Islantica City. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Islantican economy, worth a remarkable 5,951 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 381,631 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, a bureaucratic fight over IIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations, and CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Islantica's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No established religion.

Islantica is ranked 1,626th in the world and 14th in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11,718.67 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
