The Federal Socialist Republic of Izbien is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Dalward Veratiese with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.334 billion Izbiens 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, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Administration and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Izbien. The average income tax rate is 20.4%.

The thriving Izbienian economy, worth 391 trillion Juluses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,402 Juluses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Izbien's pristine beaches, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits, and the might of the entire Izbienian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Izbien's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Izbien is ranked 49,822nd in the world and 11th in Brannackia for Most Influential, scoring 288 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
