The Avatar of Thanatos of Islonia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nathan Hermet with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.373 billion Islonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpina. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Islonian economy, worth 971 trillion Iscles a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,699 Iscles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Alpina, increasing numbers of children in Islonia have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, and survivors of the Great Internet Flame War often recount horror stories of banhammers and DOS attacks. Crime is totally unknown. Islonia's national animal is the Kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Greek Pantheon.

Islonia is ranked 143,623rd in the world and 156th in Thaecia for Most Extreme, scoring 18.94 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
