The Illusion of Isokenzar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Isocato with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.269 billion Isokenzarians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sector 47. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Isokenzarian economy, worth 881 trillion z-bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,671 z-bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth, and the Communist Party claims that selling things for profit isn't necessarily capitalism. Crime is totally unknown. 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 10,636th in the world and 346th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,504.12 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
