The Republic of Itanland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ruben with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.941 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itandon. The average income tax rate is 4.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Itanlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,290 trillion Itans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 256,193 Itans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Major boxing matches are held in government buildings, gossip magazines have pictures of Ruben sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime is totally unknown. Itanland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
