The Holy Covenant of Ism is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Executor Zikzael with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, devout population of 19.528 billion Ismites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aiur. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Ismian economy, worth a remarkable 5,394 trillion Minerals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 276,223 Minerals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government snoops on private internet connections, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, the Ismian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. Crime is totally unknown. Ism's national animal is the Bengalass, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Khala.
