The Empire of Itani is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King William IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.71 billion Itanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alinor. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Itanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,030 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 218,796 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teach an angler how to phish and he can make a living, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itani's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Faith of the Eight.

Itani is ranked 3,240th in the world and 94th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 8,027.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
