The Holy Covenant of Ism is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Executor Zikzael with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 16.389 billion Ismites are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. 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 4,506 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 274,985 Minerals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers. 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.

Ism is ranked 710th in the world and 2nd in The Republic Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
