The Republic of IWCA 052 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 564 million IWCA 052ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The IWCA 052ian economy, worth 27.9 trillion rubles 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, 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 49,542 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, school uniforms are compulsory, radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IWCA 052's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

IWCA 052 is ranked 87,205th in the world and 520th in Devide by Zero for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,955.84 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
