The True Monarchy of Itzlan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Aslan Blacksong with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.008 billion Itzlani are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Environment, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night's Watch. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The powerhouse Itzlanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,217 trillion Moon Slivers 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 276,964 Moon Slivers, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Itzlan's national animal is the Great Silver Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Lunar Cult.

Itzlan is ranked 153,621st in the world and 103rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Fattest Citizens, with 7.63 Obesity Rate.
