The Golden Empire of Issrak-om is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Iiokkya Kalechcha with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 7.575 billion Issrakans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alguaooesa-om. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Issrakan economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 trillion essors 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 significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,906 essors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, the ant has a hungry look, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Issrak-om's national animal is the ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Issrak-om is ranked 187,116th in the world and 5,270th in Lazarus for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,306.5 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
