Ivan Islanar

Population3.282 billion

LeaderHer majesty the Queen Elizabeth II


The United Kingdom of Ivan Islanar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Her majesty the Queen Elizabeth II with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 3.282 billion Englands 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, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ivan Islanarian economy, worth 716 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 218,398 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

People are bored of easy crossword puzzles, wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, and the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivan Islanar's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islame.

Ivan Islanar is ranked 155,762nd in the world and 4,716th in Lazarus for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 44.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
