The Empire of Itani is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King William IV with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 1.843 billion Itanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large 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 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Itanian economy, worth 303 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 164,548 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, protests are legal but strictly supervised, and in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 The Eight Divines.

Itani is ranked 97,933rd in the world and 3,314th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,982.32 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
