The Peoples' New Union of Istnaulia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Premier Ulgar Wak with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 1.941 billion Istnaulians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vava. The average income tax rate is 40.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Istnaulian economy, worth 87.2 trillion Intas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,917 Intas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

A stitch in time could see you serving nine, torture is illegal, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Istnaulia's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Istnaulia is ranked 84,143rd in the world and 36th in Barbaria for Best Weather, with 106 Meters Of Sunlight.
