The Federal Republic of Ivernary is a large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 94 million Ivernarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Ivernaryian economy, worth 2.86 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,405 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivernary's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
