The Illusion of Isokenzar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Isocato with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.159 billion Isokenzarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sector 47. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isokenzarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,290 trillion z-bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,949 z-bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, Isokenzar isn't what it used to be, and recognizing the Isokenzarian flag qualifies you for citizenship. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isokenzar's national animal is the stinking dwarf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Ongoing Existential Crisis.

Isokenzar is ranked 4,716th in the world and 140th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 130.7 quips per hour.
