The Dominion of Istoreya is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 141 million Istoreyans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Istoreyan economy, worth 5.22 trillion papers 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 36,997 papers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Istoreya's national animal is the komodo dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Istoreya is ranked 214,140th in the world and 101st in New West Indies for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.72 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
