The Holy Empire of Itic is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, devout population of 787 million Iticians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Spirituality, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Itician economy, worth 61.6 trillion groschens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,256 groschens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, uprooting flowers for religious ceremonies is a felony, and advanced mathematics books explain how two plus two equals five. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itic's national animal is the imperial eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Itic is ranked 6,506th in the world and 95th in 10000 Islands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,364.62 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
