LeaderEmperor Istillian


The Empire of Istillian is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Istillian with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.369 billion Istillians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Law & Order, Administration, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcania. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Istillianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,270 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,628 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, and exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Istillian's national animal is the Thylacine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperialism.

Istillian is ranked 55,881st in the world and 379th in Europeia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,833.89 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
