The United Imperial States of Ivorica is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Mark Johnson with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.389 billion Ivoricans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Columbus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ivorican economy, worth a remarkable 2,366 trillion Ivorican Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 370,463 Ivorican Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,062,171 per year while the poor average 102,804, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, when shaking hands with foreign leaders Mark Johnson wears an armoured gauntlet, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, and trespassers entering Mark Johnson's office are immediately vaporized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ivorica's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bunch of religions.

Ivorica is ranked 206,948th in the world and 19th in Lezra for Least Corrupt Governments, with 13.87 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
