The Republic of Itanland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ruben with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.719 billion Itanlandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itandon. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Itanlandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,623 trillion Itans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 294,109 Itans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Itanland's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Itanland is ranked 2,296th in the world and 116th in The North Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.56 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
