The Wild West of Italios is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mercadier with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.902 billion Icarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Côte d'Or. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Italiosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,623 trillion francs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,409 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Italios, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Italios's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Italios is ranked 6,059th in the world and 4th in Snazzy for Healthiest Citizens, with 16.94 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
