The Moderately Dusty Iceberg of Itrosomia is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.7 billion Itrosomae love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Frozen City. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Itrosomior economy, worth a remarkable 1,092 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,884 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Itrosomior democracy, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and hospitals in Itrosomia are too busy serving the needs of Spiritus to see Itrosomae. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Itrosomia's national animal is the Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Itrosomia is ranked 76,962nd in the world and 116th in Spiritus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.45 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
