The Completely Zombie-Free Zone of Ismereldian Isles is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Von Not-Zombie with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.075 billion Ismereldian Islesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zombie-freeville. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Ismereldian Islesian economy, worth 479 trillion Not-Zombie Coins a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 26,555 Not-Zombie Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ismereldian Isles's national animal is the Not-a-zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Not-A-Zombieism.

Ismereldian Isles is ranked 165,285th in the world and 61st in The Allied States for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -16.47 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
