Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Moonlit Empire of Issars is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by God Urzik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.304 billion Knights are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of INFRAGILIS. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Knightly economy, worth a remarkable 3,217 trillion Denars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 387,458 Denars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, business leaders are mailing God Urzik forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs, and bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Issars's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Knighthood of the God Urzik.

Issars is ranked 45,541st in the world and 1st in Soulless Barrens for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,153.21 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
