The Republic of Itanland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ruben with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 12.791 billion Itanlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itandon. The average income tax rate is 67.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Itanlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,497 trillion Itans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 273,437 Itans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

A sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, bars are packed at all hours, nothing gets the party jumping like Ruben specifying how high, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itanland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Itanland is ranked 6,022nd in the world and 309th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,477.64 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
